My friend got pulled over the other day for driving is brothers car. When his brother is suspended. Apparently police vehicles are fitted with license plate readers that automatically scan your plates and pulls up your record?
i was working on hwy 1 last summer, and there was a car pulled to the side, had its hazard lights on, went up to ask it if we could get it outta the way cause we needed to work where he was sitting. turns out it was a cop with a licence plate scanner. it scanned every car on the hwy that drove past him, and he had cops waiting at the next exit. if a plate came up, he would radio it to the cops waiting at the exit saying "blue Toyota corolla, middle lane plate *** ***".
was quite impressed when I saw that little machine work lol.
ALPR...checks the database and all sorts of tinteresting things can pop up....stolen vehicles, wrong plates, expired insurance, driver/owner "person of interest", owner "associated to" etc. Cops can come up with the same info manually but this is way quicker and scans a huge number instantly. Not all cars...only a few Traffic cars that I know of. Very expensive camera/computer system.
I wonder if they can scan non-BC plates. Posted via RS Mobile
I went out a couple of times with the plate reader and watched for plates that it couldn't read. It read everything! There is a lot to the system, not just a simple camera. This unit had three cameras and read everything beside and in front of us.
