Remember when the government put up all these cameras and told us they were only there to detect accidents? And now they're everywhere, even where there's hardly any traffic. That's because traffic control was never the reason they were installed. Normally they're used to track suspected criminals as they drive around a city, giving police eyes in the sky. But they can easily be used to track anyone, such as a person going home from a free speech protest.
Like all surveillance tools, traffic cameras can help reduce crime. But as governments become increasingly authoritarian, cameras like these are often turned against a resisting population.
Who is watching you? And why? Start asking questions. Stop believing government lies.
