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?

I'm guessing the people driving these vans are not just imaging suspect's cars. They are apparently operating w/o warrants.

"Lets see who's getting laid in this neighborhood tonight!"
"Hey look, that guy's masturbating, lets irradiate him."

Basically try to picture Beavis and Butthead operating these things, because that's probably who is actually doing it.
