New Policy Allows I-Pass Users To Block Tracking System

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (CBS) — If you have been worried about your I-Pass tracking your every move, a policy change could put your mind at ease.

The Illinois Toll Highway Authority has announced a new safeguard policy to protect a person’s right not to be tracked while driving.

The date, time and direction of travel will be kept private.

The policy was the result of state legislation that was signed by Gov. Pat Quinn last August.

“The new law is a great protection for I-PASS customers,” state Rep. Kelly Burke (D-Oak Lawn), a sponsor of the legislation, said in a news release. “Drivers can be assured that their personal information, such as the dates, times and places where they travel on the Tollway system, will be kept private.”

The policy has been in effect now for five days.

    the information is kept private – that does not mean that big brother does not know where you are – welcome to 2012 – your movements are everyone’s business when and if you decide to commit a crime against society – just remember that and your world will not end in 2012

    Private? I thought it was private…outside of my own account and reps looking at it and law enforcement who were required to get a Court Order. Was the Tollway Authority selling or something?

    Fine and dandy – NOW – how long have they been tracking without us aware of it and why the sudden change of heart? Something here stinks like rotten Illannoy!
