Number plate camera trial begins

South Australian police have begun trialing cameras capable of instantly analysing number plates.

Four patrol cars will be equipped with the Automated Number Plate Recognition cameras, which tell police whether a car is unroadworthy, unregistered, uninsured, or stolen.

Police say the technology will also help them catch criminals, by linking known offenders to certain vehicles and those vehicles to crime scenes.

The system can also tell police if a car belongs to a known arsonist.

Chief Superintendent Paul Schramm says after successful trials of a fixed camera during last year's bushfire season, patrols will target hot spots again this year.

"Now we have a lot of persons of interest we believe are out and about lighting fires, we will be feeding all of their registration numbers into this system, and then placing these vehicles strategically in high risk fire areas, so that's just one example as to where we can see some benefit," he said.

The trial will run until the end of the year, when it will be decided whether more cameras will be installed.

The software has been running for a good 8 years in the UK & it works very well.  The problem the UK police found was that 10% of all cars on the road in inner london were on the road illegally.  Mostly no insurance.

We have those cameras in Vic too.  They could have saved million$ by just visiting my "spotted" gallery every week or so - wouldn't be many cars that aren't in there  ;)

Or you could approach the government and get them to pay you to “spot” certain cars on their list…. Like a bounty hunter…
