"The remit of this study is to consider the deployment of RFID specifically for
motorcycles. The aim is to determine whether the placing of microchips in number
plates or on the vehicles in a location other than the number plate would significantly improve the identification of motorcycles on the road to increase compliance with road traffic legislation, reduce VED evasion and reduce motorcycle theft."

While I think it does have positive connotations (its awesome what they are doing at the track and asslymbly line with these) i think that it is a little too "big brother" for my tastes. I don't want the government to know when and where I pass checkpoints or maybe trying to calculate speeds by how fast I made it from point a to point b. I think I’ll just stick with my lojack to worry about anti theft

I concur!

rfid

this is the report I was trying to post earlier.

http://74.125.45.104/search?q=cache...les&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=us&client=firefox-a


Conclusion
A very high level estimate for fitting tags to the 2,126,557 bikes on record (as of June
2007) and the 133,000 new bikes sales for 2007, together with hand-held readers for
police ANPR units and IT developments is over £100 million. This would be for the
cheapest option as in the DVLA trial. Achieving 100% compliance on motorcycle
VED would bring in approximately £27 million for HMT. The cost of number plates
vary and the latest information from the trade suggests that a chipped plate would cost
little extra. We have used £15 per plate as an estimated cost for the purpose of
calculations.
RFID is a tried and tested technology with a wide range of practical applications. It is
increasingly being seen internationally as a tool for the management of road traffic
and vehicle registration systems. Indeed, there is a new CEN/ISO standard for RFID
due for publication in 2008.
Recommendation
The remit of this report is to consider the deployment of RFID specifically for
motorcycles, especially in the context of VED evasion. Given the practical, legal and
cost issues outlined above together with the ongoing improvement in ANPR
performance, the Agency’s improved publicity and wheelclamping campaigns, RFID
for this specific purpose alone would not add sufficient value to justify
implementation at this stage.
However, this is not to say that the use of RFID in road traffic management is ruled
out. The Department for Transport and DVLA continue to monitor developments in
this field and to assess the potential for practical application.

The favoured option emerging from this report is option 3 – to pursue alternative
methods of tackling evasion.

You know, since it would probably illegal to remove the deals as well, I bet money that doing this would be catastrophic to the funds that motorcycle registrations bring in. I doubt I would be the only one to quit riding if I was being tracked everywhere I went. I'll ride my bicycle, thanks.

already tracking and recording is done on cellphones and ez tag
along with the video cameras at almost every corner here.

this will be done on cars plates too, just think, get a ticket in the mail anytime you speed.

pretty soon a individual will have a hard time traveling out their "section".

In 10 years we will be a bankrupt socialist monarchy. I will be living in the woods with my friends ala Red Dawn.
