It's easy enough to avoid having your number plate photographed. Don't drive in the charging area.
If you ask me the enormous number of closed circuit TV cameras all over London (ostensibly to combat crime) is a much greater threat to liberties and privacy. A good proportion of surveillance cameras (eg: in shops, outside banks) are owned by private companies who are not accountable to the public. What are the potential uses of THEIR footage? If anyone wanted to track a car through central London it could be done easily with the thousands of closed circuit cameras on every street corner. No need to use the congestion charging cameras.
