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.

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?
