The idea of deploying public vehicle fleets with technology like cameras and license-plate scanners is not a new one. From public works vehicles in Washington, D.C., deployed with automatic license plate readers to school buses in Mercer Island, Washington, equipped with stop-arm enforcement cameras, local governments are extending the reach of their enforcement capabilities, raising questions about surveillance, data retention and privacy in the process.

PHOENIX -- By collision standards, last week’s incident involving a Tesla Model X and a Phoenix police motorcycle officer barely qualified for a police report.

The officer, who was in front of the Tesla, stopped for a traffic signal, police said. After also stopping briefly, the Tesla began creeping forward, prompting the officer to jump off his motorcycle and move away. The officer later estimated the car was moving at about three miles per hour, police said. There were no injuries or no damage.

During the past decade, the rise in car-sharing services, urban living and college debt payments led to doubts about millennials' desire to ever own a vehicle.

Not anymore. Millennials make up the fastest growing segment among vehicle buyers and likely will represent about 40 percent of the U.S. new-vehicle market by 2020.
