Check out this privacy nightmares "game" on MSNBC.com. It's a little bit scary.

That is pretty scary.

I did hear something else about the EZPass, but I don't know if it is just one of those urban legends. I heard that the police want to start using EZ Pass records to send tickets to people. Like if you use the pass at point A and get to point B in 10 minutes when going the speed limit it should have taken you 20 obviously you were speeding and the police want to send you a ticket using the EX Pass records. Has anyone else heard of this or is it just one of those urban legends?

I have heard the same story, AuditGuy but not sure if it is true. A year or so ago NH started using EZ pass at its toll booths, and a TV station did a story about how the "cameras" at the booths, which were there to snap photos of the cars that didn't pay the toll, were not running-essentially they were props....just like telling people where the drunk driving roadblocks will be....

Turnpike Exit 10
Never got a ticket yet... I know that wouldn't work on the GS Parkway, because there are too many entrances and exits without tolls. On the NJ Turnpike, however, you have to pay when you get on and pay when you get off, it could work there.

I heard that it wouldn't fly in NJ.

For the record I have not gotten one yet either... and I know that I probably would have by now.

In Illinois we have I-Pass, and people discuss this all the time. It doesn't appear that the police are using it to give speeding tickets so far, but I think it's just a matter of time. Even then though I think they'll only ticket drivers going way over the limit.
