The on board system just makes their job a bit easier, like red light cameras.

Again, if you get caught by a real person, take your medicine and accept it. We don't need to keep giving up our civil liberties and turn this nation into a police state.
You would be shocked to know what is already being monitored without you knowing it via your cell phone, internet connection and home land line.
