Road Spies Exposed – Americans Sick Of Privacy Invasions

In a lawsuit contesting the use of automatic license plate reading cameras throughout the state, summonses have been served to the Illinois State Police, AG Kwame Raoul, and Governor J.B. Pritzker.

The complaint was filed last week in federal court in the Northern District of Illinois by the Liberty Justice Center. The case’s attorney, Reilly Stephens, stated that ALPRs are essentially ubiquitous.

He declared, “Every time you pass one of these cameras on one of these roads, they are tracking you.” “They’re putting that into a federal database that thousands of police organizations nationwide share.”

ISPs announced in January of this year that they were using technology more frequently to “target and track criminal activity.”

At the time, Pritzker declared that the ALPRs surrounding Chicago were “an additional measure to improve public safety for inhabitants and tourists to the country’s third-largest metropolis.”

ISP reported that 289 ALPRs had been deployed in the Chicago region by the end of 2022. In the counties of Cook, St. Claire, Champaign, and Morgan, 139 more ALRPs were installed in 2023. The organization stated that it planned to deploy cameras in other counties in 2024. It also planned to put cameras along Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive and in many other counties.

According to an August 2023 annual ISP ALPR report, the cost of installation in Cook and St. Clair counties was $6.6 million. $100,000 was spent on maintenance. There have been 1.5 million detections in total—that is, license plate reads that the system has recorded. There were 282,118 inquiries where a criminal offense was the subject of the inquiry.

The Illinois Dept. of Transportation will receive $7 million from lawmakers this week’s budget approval for the upcoming fiscal year so that it can place cameras and automated license plate readers on state highways.

According to Stephens, the dragnet may follow a lot more than just a criminal suspect who is on the run.

“Every time you attended an NRA function, a Trump rally, a Joe Biden rally, a BLM rally, or a medical appointment,” he said.

According to the case, the Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable search and seizure, and this is violated by the system.

“Permanently monitoring every individual and their journeys and locations is an excessive amount of distance,” he declared.

Not only do public entities utilize ALPRs, but private organizations as well, such as shopping centers, movie theaters, and homeowners’ associations.

  1. We are already being tracked and have been for sometime.
    Have you ever recieved, on your phone, how was your trip to Walmart?

  2. This is a two edged sword of sorts.
    On one hand, it would be helpful to identify stolen vehicles and quickly get criminals off the streets.
    On the other side of the coin, our privacy is up for grabs as derailed above.

  3. People can say I am crazy, but I believe every single person who received that Covid 19 shot can be easily tracked. Nanobot technology is REAL. The whole lie about how serious it was, was in essence designed to get those shots into as many people as possible. I also believe they have the capability to trigger fatal results when ever they want.

  4. I don’t see any problem with cameras on the roads. There are not enough Cops out there to catch all of the speeding and bullying drivers on the road today. These cameras will help put an end to their crap. No one complains when the cameras record your tag and send you the bill for using a toll road so you don’t have to stop and wait to pay a toll. Streets are public domain and subject to public laws. If you want to complain – gripe about how you can be tracked by your cell phone. How smart appliances and your computers are tracking you. That is an invasion of privacy. In China they issued COVID Vax passes to those who were vaxxed if not vaxxed you did not get a pass to move around. However those passes were electronic and put into your cell phone. If you said or did anything the powers that be did not like – your COVID pass was deleted. How Nazi is that? Now apply that same technology to the digital dollar they are pushing so hard for. Essentially making slaves of everyone – do as we say or else. Not to mention how even without that hanging over your head – IF the power or internet goes down for any reason at all – you can’t buy anything until it comes back up. How will that effect peole during natural disasters like Hurricanes, Tornadoes or Earthquakes? Or just a normal day in California when the grid gets overloaded and shuts down?

  5. I once thought about how – if I could somehow get 5 cents from everyone in the county that I live in – I would have $50,000. Getting a nickel out of people is probably not that hard. But what if you could hack into bank accounts. How many millions of bank accounts are in this country? If you took one penny from each one of those accounts once a month – you would be pretty damned wealthy and who is going to notice a penny gone? Most people would look at what the bank is posting compared to what they thought they had – and if it’s a penny difference they will think they did a pretty damned good job of balancing their accounts. Now look at our government especially at the federal level when they raise taxes on us it is not simply one penny or even a nickel They raise taxes in the billions if not trillions of dollars to put more money in the accounts so they can give it away to someone else – in a lot of cases people who absolutely hate us. The next time you see one of those tax increases whip out your calculator and do the math what does that average out to per person? There are supposedly about 300,000,000 people in this country – that gives you a rough idea about how much – but, then you have to realize that not everyone of those 300,000,000 pay taxes – so that figure goes up exponnentially. Shouldn’t we be demanding more accountability out of our government? Hillary Clinton could not account for over $2 Billion after it was funneled thru the Clinton “Foundation” – more like a Trust – on her orders as Secretary of Take in 2010 after the Haitian Earthquake. That was a part of the relief money. Bill DeBlasio and his wife could not account for almost $1 Billion of NYC taxpayer money. Now in California Newsom cannot account for over $24 Billion. They did get Trump for paying $130,000 in hush money though and they are still crowing about it. Forget that Bill Clinton paid Paula Jones $800,000 – we are told that was completely different. The biggest difference was the (D) after Clinton’s name. Another difference was that at the time these events happened – Trump was a private citizen. Clinton was an elected official.

  6. Your cellphone is the real tracker. No alternative either. China is listening, thanks creepy Joe!
