In five federal states, the license plates are still checked by video. This is unconstitutional, as the ADAC criticizes.
According to a recent survey by the ADAC, five federal states are currently still violating a judgment of the Federal Constitutional Court on video scanning last year. As the automobile club announced on Thursday, the regulation has been revised in Bavaria and Lower Saxony, but it still does not comply with the constitution. "In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, drivers are still being monitored for no reason whatsoever, according to the old law, which is unconstitutional in some aspects," according to the ADAC.
No basis in Berlin
In addition, despite the requirements of the Federal Constitutional Court, Baden-Württemberg is now also planning an unconstitutional monitoring of road traffic. Berlin now even carries out video controls without a required legal basis. More than a year ago, the ADAC had drawn attention to the surveillance practices of some countries.
At that time it was criticized that “the controls would be concealed and without any cause or suspicion”. "This enables comprehensive monitoring, and personal movement profiles can also be created."
"License plate scanning must remain a special monitoring measure for serious searches, otherwise it violates the Basic Law and means entry into the Big Brother state," said ADAC Vice President Ulrich Klaus Becker. As can be seen from the ADAC's report, four federal states - Hamburg, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland - have suspended their unconstitutional laws in practice, but have not yet changed them. Video scanning is not used in Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein. (AG)
