Massachusetts Committee Approves Bill to Limit ALPR use, Help Block National License Plate Tracking Program

BOSTON, Mass. (Feb. 12, 2018) – Today, a Massachusetts committee passed a bill that would put strict limitations on the use of automated license plate reader systems (ALPRs) by the state. Passage into law would also place significant roadblocks in the way of a federal program using states to help track the location of millions of everyday people through pictures of their license plates.
