Column: FasTrak agencies may have sold out your privacy. Now they want legal immunity
Transit authorities statewide have been targeted with lawsuits alleging that, among other privacy violations, information from toll-road transponders — think FasTrak — is being used to illegally market to drivers.
Transit agencies have taken the legal threat seriously enough that they’ve enlisted a Southern California state senator to introduce legislation giving them retroactive immunity — that is, a get-out-of-jail-free card for any past misdeeds.
At stake is potentially billions of dollars in fines.
And also your personal information.
