Did you hear the one about the guy who was caught cheating when a traffic cam snapped his photo with another woman in the car?
That’s not this case, but it has a cross-over issue. Los Angeles police use high-speed cameras to scan license plates and then catch drivers who are involved in crimes. They scan about 1.8 million license plates a week.
But what to do about the privacy of all those people who are not criminals? That’s the question the state Supreme Court sent to a trial judge to consider.
