I’ve seen speculation these cameras may include ANPR (numberplate recognition) in order to help enforce the new ULEZ
Surly it’s a good thing why are you concerned
I feel safer knowing there’s CCTV. But only if I know that it is trained police staff doing the watching, and that the footage is securely transmitted and stored, and that, frankly, it is not pointing directly into my bedroom!
It is odd that no announcement was made before these cameras were installed.
