CCTV – DOES IT INVADE YOUR PRIVACY?

In March 2011, the website http://www.no-cctv.org.uk posted a detailed article about the many ways in which CCTV affects our freedoms and privacy.  One  of the more notable of these is mentioned as being released from the Home Office in a press release:

the introduction of a code of practice for CCTV and Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems (overseen by a new Surveillance Camera Commissioner) to make them more proportionate and effective.

The number plate on a car is considered personal information, which is not supposed to be known or used by anyone else.  It is a direct violation of our basic right to privacy!Many people have complained of having their streets jammed with CCTV cameras.  There are some cases where cameras are capable of looking directly into the houses of people, once again invading the right to privacy.  Is CCTV worth the violation of human rights?
