License plate readers in Oregon lead to arrest of a fugitive with warrants for robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle and contempt of court.
Maryland's new law touted as a model piece of legislation elsewhere in the country as it preserves the many benefits of license plate reader technology and data, while also seeking to advance protections on driver privacy.
License Plate Reader technology proved its usefulness by helping to track down a shooter who terrorized the highways of Kansas City. Had the LPR data not been saved, the shooter might still be on the loose. Laws that attempt to limit LPR data storage put citizens at harm.
