Maybe David Pearson will relate the Texas experience - seems like they
did a survey in the past 5 years based on license capture and, at some
point, was talking with the ACLU.
My opinion is that perception is everything - if the public thinks you
are trying to be sneaky (even though you may not be), they will call you
on it and you will get bad press/public opposition. If you coordinate
with the local media and other agencies in advance, tell them why you
need the data, tell them how you plan to protect privacy, it seems like
you might get a better reception by the public.

We are in discussions about doing an external survey here in KC and have
had the same concerns brought up. May look at license capture.
Anyone done one of those recently?

sometimes our surveys do not quite go the way we planned.
