I travel on interstateÂ Â I-380 from Cedar Rapids to North Liberty daily.Â Â Over the last month I’ve noticed a string of web cam’s be installed.Â Traveling south from Cedar Rapids the start at the Highway 30 bridge and continue all the way down to North Liberty.Â Â Â I’ve counted more than 10 of them.Â Â Each camera has line of site of the next one.
This concerns me a little.Â Â Â Did anyone even know they were there?Â or that they were being put up?Â Â Â I realize in today’s world with almost everyone having a camera in pocket and our addiction to social networks, that we have little or no privacy.Â Â Â Even with all these intrusions, I’ve never had the uneasy feeling that “big brother” is watching.Â Â Â Â I’m starting to get that “feeling” now.Â Â Â
I do see both sides of the coin.Â This could be good as it would improve safety in the corridor.Â Â It could also be a major privacy concern.Â Â Â
I would love to hear your thoughts on these eyes in the sky.Â Â Please post a comment, or drop me a line- Canman
