Police in Frankston, Australia used automobile seizure laws this weekend to impound a toy motorcycle belonging to a little girl. While under her father's supervision, Laney Frankland, 5, had been riding in circles around a reserve near the end of a neighborhood cul-de-sac on a 49cc motorbike. Police arrived on the scene late in the afternoon to tell the little girl that she was not supposed to be riding in that location. The officers then summoned a tow truck to take away her bike. The girl ran to her mother.

The new system also gives city-parish workers the right to clean up an uncooperative property owner’s parcel and add the costs to the owner’s annual tax bill.

The blog has been labeled as "offensive content" --a warning splash page inserted, and the moderately popular blog has been de-indexed in the search engines.
Freedom of movement may well be a thing of the past in Tiburon, CA if Automated License Plate Recognition cameras are activated to record and track the movements of all vehicles entering and exiting the city.
