NSW Police Cars equipped with Automatic Number-Plate Recognition technology

In an article entitled “What makes a police car cost $120,000?“, Sam Hall lists the equipment installed in highway-patrol vehicles. At the top of his list is the impressive Automatic Number-Plate Recognition Technology:

Three cameras mounted on the car’s roof link to a computer running optical recognition software and a database of stolen, unregistered or suspect vehicles, which sounds an alarm every time it finds a match. The equipment can scan and check up to six plates a second. The data is linked to a laptop computer and mobile data terminal fitted in each vehicle.

You can run but you can’t hide.
