From July 1, China’s Ministry of Public Security will oversee a program to install a radio-frequency identification chip in the windshields of new cars when they’re registered. While installing the chips won’t be mandatory this year, having an “electronic license plate” (link in Chinese), as authorities are calling it, will be required from 2019, according to the Journal. The plan, which authorities say is meant to curb congestion, involves setting up hundreds of thousands of chip-reading units to track passing cars...

In the U.S., car manufacturers track cars:

Another dirty little secret:  there are networks of cameras owned by car repo agencies, that track every single vehicle on the road, within limits (don't track certain rural roads).  They use OCR to identify license plate numbers.

 

Technically, if you commit a crime in the U.S., these agencies could track your car practically anywhere you go.  But most people aren't aware of it; local police don't use the service; and federal authorities only do so in high-profile cases.

An article from 2014 about what I was saying:
 
http://abc7.com/news...-on-you/379656/
 

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A vast and virtually unknown network of surveillance is rapidly expanding across California and the entire country. It's being fueled by an industry already beset by image problems.

"Nobody likes the repo man, you know?" chuckles Mario, who spoke to Eyewitness News on the condition that we not use his last name.


It's a lot more sophisticated than that now.

There are probably also agencies that use facial recognition to track individuals. Most aren't aware of this. If you're rich enough, you can tap into the services.

I guess you'd better have a clean rap sheet, lest you want to be targeted by all those cams.

 

So it seems George Orwell's fears have been realized except for the fact it's not BIG BROTHER doing the surveillance, but the private companies with the aim of making profit. I guess to the bourgeois it's all the same.
