Big Brother Watches You On The Road Too Stephen Fung March 23, 2007 A new Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) system has been recently introduced to the Police force in Utah and California, and is now standard equipment on their patrol cars. These special cameras can automatically “read” license plates — 3,000 an hour! — then compares them to a central database where information is stored concerning any kind of crime linked to the vehicle. The reading can take place in any weather condition, and even in complete darkness! With this type of system, criminals will have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
