RFID tag on my car

I brought a car which has a RFID tag on it.

Given we can track anything using GPS like mobile phones etc.. How can I use RFID tag to track my vehicle or pay tolls.

Any other uses of RFID

RFID on a car is already used to track certain things, eg airpressure of the tires, it could be used to track rental vehicles when they drive off the parking lot (no more manual scanning necessary), I think AVIS is already using/testing it.

FasTrak in California already uses RFID for toll payment.

It could be used to open your garage port when you near it, or open/start your car, it could track your car if the roads where paved with RFID receivers, it would be interesting for driverless cars even (granted, perhaps not currently)...

It can secure your car, kinda like loJack, where it needs to read your specific RFID before it can start the car. It could be used for parking spaces, specifically allowing only your RFID to park there.

It could be used to allow electric cars to dock into an electric charging unit...

Now, probably not everything is safe enough yet to use, but a lot of these examples are already in use.

In shops, the price tags can be equiped with RFID to change prices digitally and maybe even remotely if the range can be covered. In airports it can be used to track luggage, ...

You can track almost anything, it's here to stay for a while.
