The Association of British Drivers is campaigning for a fair deal for the motorist – and calls for measures to PROTECT OUR PRIVACY.

The government is promoting road pricing in spite of massive public opposition. In a petition, 1.8 million people raised their concerns over privacy as well as cost.

Road pricing systems on the drawing board would record drivers’ movements in detail, opening up disastrous possibilities for the disclosure or loss of our sensitive personal data. Surveys show that motorists don’t trust a government that wants to widely share or even sell our data.

The government increasingly intends to record our journeys on all major roads using CCTV and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology. Images will be retained on a National Vehicle Tracking Database – even though there is evidence that this indiscriminate surveillance is illegal.
