Schwarzenegger approves bill to protect privacy of FasTrak customers 

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Thursday signed a bill that aims to protect the privacy of drivers who use the FasTrak payment system.

SB 1268, by Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, requires FasTrak to give subscribers notice of the company's privacy practices, according to a release.

"Relatively obscure transportation agencies have personal data and travel histories for well over a million Californians," Simitian said.

The bill prohibits transportation agencies from selling personal data, and it sets penalties for doing so, the statement said.

"Personal driving histories are just that, personal," Simitian said.
