Another reason for FNPs. DJ McCarthy, MRA Vice prez, posted a note today about cops testing a new bit of technology that's reminiscent of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. It supposedly locates and zooms in on number plates, scans it, then interogates the rego database. It then reports either lost, stolen or valid rego. Apparently the cops checked 2,700 vehicles with 51 of them being booked. The "camera" or whatever it was, was shooting from the front.
