Great Britan has been using neighborhood surveylance cameras for a while now, and it has made their streets and public areas safer (how much really can't be measured). Is it better than the cop on patrol? Not as personal, but able to be in more places at once.
Knoxville, TN installed traffic light cameras this last year. A percentage of the ticket money goes to the company that installed them. If you lived here , you would either a) be ticked off because you might get a ticket for your habit of running the lights or b) be grateful that the intersections will be a bit safer and less third-world.
Big brother? I don't worry about the government as much as I worry about the people that spend all of their waking hours trying to think of new ways to either make money at the expense of others or just cause others grief. Sure, there are some out-of-control folks in government. Most of them at least INTEND to be helping the general good.
