City officials announced that E-Z Pass transponders will be installed on the bridge, as well as several other spots throughout the streets of lower Manhattan below Canal Street in order to monitor the flow of traffic and come up with potential ways to ease congestion in that part of town. The Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center will be in charge of the project, which they emphasize will not be able to detect either license plate numbers or the drivers inside the vehicles.
Well if they have your EZ Pass number, then they basically know your license plate # and who you are. Could this be the first step toward sneaking congestion pricing through the back door?
(This graphic and the one of the tweeder military marching through Willets Point were both created before either event took place... my clairvoyance is starting to scare me...)
