It’s a major issue.

If your vehicle is PNO you DO NOT need it to be insured.

i don't know about anyone eles, but i see it as just another way to keep track you, "GPS."... if i wanted that i would have already put one in my car, as well as a lojack or have onstar.

it's unbelievable the lenths that are being gone through to monitor and track the population. doh.gif

but of course it's for your own good kookoo.gif

I didn't read anything about a GPS... Besides they already have your cell phone to track you by.

Much like the rest of the country. Carefull though, usually California is the early adopter/testing grounds for things that eventually become standards in the rest of the country...

This.

Now what will all the prisoners do?

It can't be any worse than what we have now...any dink with a screw driver can steal my plates and go do a drive off at a gas station. Well, I actually bought the locking screws to hold mine on since it was becoming a common occurrence in my area, but I am pretty sure one solid blow from a hammer would probably smash the lock off...or some one could pick it with a bic pen....it is that round key type of lock.

You guys up in that are are in like another Universe... Your state has money and they put it in the right places.

California is not really getting any better as far as employment goes and laws go. I live in the most screwed up state ever.

I don't know. The bay area is booming with jobs right now and they are building lots of new office space. Plus there are way more people on the roads during commute times lately. If you hate it here so much, work to fix the state or find a better place to live.

I've had the plate on my motorcycle stolen twice in the last 5 years. Both times it was found on a stolen motorcycle within 2 days by local cops using the license scanning cameras. Both people were gang members and busted on the spot.

In my area people will take the plates off a car they don't think is on a camera. Then use the plate for a drive off at a gas station and then switch back to their legally acquired plate after they get a safe distance away. Very few have been caught...and think they were caught stealing the plate, not using the plate

What really makes me worry is what if some one with the same make, model and color car took my plates...I'd have a fun time trying to convince the police it wasn't me. They could do any sort of crime too...not just steal gas.

I agree i see alot of upside to this if they can make it secure enugh that it can not be abused or hacked, and seems like it could save states money and even generate income if they set up a website or phone system to let people renew over the internet and then the plate would get the update and your good, that would save states money but some people would lose jobs tho.

easier to launch a rocket at a GPS tag
post #19 of 37
If this cuts down on insured drivers here in california, then i'm all for it.

As long as it's solar powered or something and doesnt need rigging to my car's electronic system. I suspect this will be based off of a low power tech like E-Ink.

Again, where are you getting a GPS from? ...and why would anyone care to launch a rocket at your vehicle? It's much easier to tag your phone and launch away.
