The experience of driving is mediated by a politics of data-driven governance and resistance. These politics hinge on the extensive use of networked digital devices/data by road authorities and users. The former operate such technologies to manipulate the behaviour of drivers, while the latter deploy them to subvert the depersonalizing systems of control to which they are subjected. Using evidence derived from two online forums, we explore both the meanings that certain road users ascribe to the simulated justice they experience, but also the mediated practices of resistance they perform. We suggest that this example of ‘technoscientific citizenship’, where in response to unpalatable crime control measures discrete drivers coalesce on virtual forums and share/crowdsource digital data, poses some interesting new epistemic questions as regards emerging forms of public criminology.
