Big Brother can drive your car

A plan was recently announced in London, England to put tracking devices on cars to monitor them in the congested downtown areas. It could result in lower fees for the "congestion charge" of 8 pounds per day - essentially a toll for driving there. Recent reports say that the technology can actually be used to monitor the location and speed of cars, and apply the brakes and lift the accelerator if the car exceeds the speed limit.

Very spooky.
