Tybee Island, you may remember, was planning on putting up cameras to monitor which visitors come to the island.
Well it turns out they are no longer going to do so. From the Savannah Morning News.
The Tybee Island City Council on Monday voted unanimously to rescind the purchase approval of two license plate scanners it had granted during a Nov. 14 meeting.
Citing negative feedback from the public and concerns over how the information from the scanners would translate to a tourism study being conducted by a local professor, the council instead voted to purchase a higher quality of the current vehicle trackers the city has stretched over U.S. 80.
So they are still tracking cars, just not license plates.
