Well i don't know if people know that this is happening but i thought i would post anyway. I was in Bolton today and was parked up and brought a ticket even though i was only going to be 5 mins. As i got back to the car the traffic warden was just walking past my car and taking pictures of it. My first thought is what the heck have they found wrong now and issuing a ticket like parking out of the lines or something stupid like they do. They took a picture of the front and back of the car and then a copy of the ticket in the window. I asked him why he was issuing a ticket and he said he aint they are just taking pictures of ALL the cars that are parked now so that they can show that if people are parking there for more than an hour, i.e buying a ticket then coming back in an hours time and rebuying another ticket they have the evidence that the car was parked there before with the pictures. I thought crafty beggers they will do anything to try and catch people out to issue a ticket. As i thought about it though surely they just can't go round taking pictures of all the vehicles parked no matter which town it is and whats not to stop them using them pictures to just issue none fictional parking infrindgements anyway later in the day when ur gone or something? and surely is this not a case of your privacy rights like what happened with google taking pictures or peoples house and themselves or cars without the owners permission, and its not as they inform you that they will take pictures of your car if you park up.

There are no uk privacy laws in a public place in the uk, anyone can take a photo of anything in a public place as long as it is nothing to compromise national security. Data protection covers stored images but not the taking of photos.

Yep, it's pretty standard I think. If you were ticketed at 2:30 for staying too long, you'd demand some evidence that the car was parked there prior to 1:30. This provides such evidence, which is why they do it.

Data protection covers the acquisition of personal data.

 

The issue is more whether number plates and images thereof constitute personal data.

I would also question whether the taking and storing of photos comes under the auspices of RIPA.

then every cctv system in the land is at fault, thus, cannot be so.

However, there is no legal restriction on taking photographs in a public street beyond the Terrorism Act. If such a picture includes people or vehicles, so be it - it matters not. IOW, if you are in a public place, you cannot insist that your photograph is not taken.

I don't think that they do as the VRM only identifies a particular vehicle - and an inaminate object cannot have personal data. Any VRM would have to be referenced to the DVLA's database to gain personal information about the RK (who may or may not be the driver). As an aside, VRMs remain the property of the state (DVLA) anyway

Thinking about it again - RIPA only covers communications data.

doesn't the registration 'belong' to the DVLA post V62 and V5 ? Admittedly the DVLA does qualify as a legal 'person' that can sue and be sued but I don't think they are going to argue about the CEO snaps.
