Can plate readers be used to see if inspection sticker date is valid.

    I see LEO at the tolls. They look for inspection stickers. Has this been automated by the cameras as I see I new breed of readers. In the center of the LEO trunk that looks super sleuth. My car is inspected but technology updates often bring additional software.

    Is it plates only? If too advanced for forum feel free to delete.

    Drive safe

    Thanks. The video is creepy, I am a vet, law abiding citizen, and believe in God. They might as well start using the cell phone gps on speeders and get them at the next toll.


    I wonder who else they sell this info to? Local store owners so targeted postal mail can be sent to frequent passer Byers ? Thanks

    The Repo guys are buying and selling the info as well that they get from LE. They are using it to find cars and in turn, they can help find "people." Big Brother is watching...............

    During the old days it was a common practice in Greece to have police checks at the tolls. They were looking for two stickers: the annual fees being paid and technical inspection passed. The last 2-3 years some patrol cars have ANPR and continuously check for fake plates, absence of insurance, annual fees being paid, technical inspection passed, owner wanted by the police. The patrol cars without ANPR have board computers that use the 3G network of the mobile operators to check the same stuff by manually entering the licence plate number to the system. Even if I personally disagree with surveillance I recognize that by having these systems the numbers of cars without insurance is almost zero and no car without annual fees being paid is found, at least around the major cities where ANPR systems are present.

    I've noticed strange looking electronic devices mounted on the trunk of a police challenger sitting near a well traveled road. I never got any radar detection hits and was a little puzzled by this.
    It wasn't until poking around on the net I discovered that the particular devices in question were new license plate readers (I guess he was taking it for a spin that day).

    Several weeks prior, I noted those road signs declaring that front mounted license plates be mounted and that police will crack down on cars without said front plates; putting two together, I guess the enforcement of this front plate law is to facilitate ALPR functionality
