automated license plate readers
In an attempt to collect on millions of dollars in unpaid tolls, the North Texas Tollway Authority is now using automatic license plate readers to catch habitual toll violators.
Chances are better than 50-50 that the Fort Worth firm Digital Recognition Network (DRN) at some point has taken a picture of your vehicle’s license plate. The odds increase to nearly 100-percent if you live in a major city.
They’re becoming a popular tool among law enforcement in North Texas, but automated license plate readers come with their critics.
