ACLU calls for standards for license plate tracking information

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- The American Civil Liberties Union has issued a new report on the police practice of tracking license plates. The ACLU of Michigan's Miriam Aukerman says many departments are now equipping their squad cars with cameras that record license plates, and there's no standard for how long that information is kept.

She tells us that the information colllected includes date, time, and GPS location.

Aukerman believes that raises all sorts of privacy concerns, as someone's whereabouts could potentially be tracked all of the time and used against them. The ACLU is calling for rules on how long the data can be kept and on who has access to it. You can see the ACLU's report on the practice at ACLU.org .
