Privacy, Security, Encryption If you're modest, think twice before having sex in your van, truck, or RV. Law enforcement uses roving vans with backscatter X-ray technology to peer inside vehicles (the same technology used in airport body scanners). In the Land of the Free, authorities don't request search warrants. More at Forbes here and here. What, you don't want an X-ray bath?

You're saying that they just rove around and scan people without telling them? That seems pretty invasive. In the U.S. courts have stricken down attempts to scan people's houses from outside in this manner. Maybe a court challenge will come up with the roving vans.
