Big Brother in 2013


Huxley was right, he was just off by about 30 years.  But in the US of A, Big Brother has arrived in most every city and town due largely to monies provided by the Department of Homeland Security.  Even one-horse towns in the middle of nowhere with one stoplight have bought a plethora of cameras with which to spy on citizens to help fight "terrorism."

The newer GPS systems (at least the Garmins do) have an indicator that tell you if there is a camera at an intersection! Yes, there's big brother, but we can fight back!

In Montreal cameras are quite common nowadays...even in some buses.

So many signs, impossible to read all and drive at the same time! :)
Better stay cool about the red light and the camera!
