Stop SB 806 Before it Legalizes 'Big Brother' Licence Plates

“It means everyone driving in California will have their location accessible to the government at any time,” said Nate Cardozo, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.


Cardozo of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said the technology could lead to police monitoring, particularly in light of a Supreme Court ruling last year that said law enforcement needed a search warrant to place a tracking device on a vehicle. “If the technology is already on the car, then the government wouldn’t need a warrant to place the device because it’s already there,” Cardozo said.
