Of course, in a place where surveillance infrastructure
is already capitalized (think London), adding the ability
to track bluetooth tire sensors would be so easy... and
self-initializing at the toll stations where the license
plates are read and correlation between plate number and
current radio fingerprint trivially recorded.
