Automobile Association Urges Supreme Court to Quash RFID Project
RFID—PHILIPPINESMarch 4, 2010
The Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP) is urging the Supreme Court to rule that the government's plan to attach radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to all vehicles is illegal, ABS-CBN News reports. The AAP's petition says that, among other things, the RFID project violates the constitutionally protected right to privacy. The RFID project would require all vehicles to install stickers containing a microchip that stores vehicle information, the report states, but the project has been stalled since the Supreme Court issued an order last January postponing implementation of the project.
