In a move that would have made Hitler's Gestapo or East Germany's Stasi secret police proud, British government officials are drawing up plans to fit all cars in Britain with a personalised microchip so that rule-breaking motorists can be prosecuted by computer. According to the Sunday Times, which broke the story at the weekend, the chip, dubbed the "Spy in the Dashboard" and "the Informer" will automatically report a wide range of offences including speeding, road tax evasion and illegal parking and the first a car owner will know about it is when a summons or a fine arrives in the post.
