RFID News, part 2

It never ceases to amaze me what people will do/give up in a quest for "perfect" security. The Brits want to put active RFID chips in auto license plates? Ye Flippin' Gods! I guess the complaints about the speeding cameras finally got to them, so now they want a technology that can be easily hidden.

Of course, the American Control Freak Association likes them too:

"We definitely have an interest in testing an RFID-tagged license plate," said Jerry Dike, chairman of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators and director of the Vehicle Titles and Registration Division of the Texas Department of Transportation.

Ye Flippin' Gods indeed.
