Camera-shy. Running out of excuses to delay deployment of ALPR?

Despite the proven success of ALPR, negative public perception and privacy issues are still causing concern. The public perception issue arises from ALPR being used mostly for enforcing the law on driving, so the public views it in a bad light. However, road operators have also come to perceive ALPR solely as a way to catch speeding motorists or to enforce parking, not realising it could help them to achieve other goals. Operators in some countries restrain themselves from making more use of the data that their existing systems capture because they are scared that they may contravene privacy legislation. The technology is seen by many as a key component of improved security, however, some believe AFPR is simply not being utilised to its full potential by the highways and transport agencies. This article also discusses further applications.
