Num­ber plate recog­ni­tion car

Bray People - - Bray One-act Play Festival Awards -

MO­TORISTS driv­ing without tax or in­sur­ance be­ware you will be caught.

Su­per­in­ten­dant Mick Lerni­han said last week that the gar­daí in North Wick­low had added a pa­trol car with Au­to­matic Num­ber Plate Recog­ni­tion (ANPR) to their fleet.

‘It is a fan­tas­tic piece of equip­ment. It scans the num­ber plate of a car from ei­ther the front or the back and can tell you if the car is taxed, in­sured or if it is stolen. It is very good for crime preven­tion.’

He said that the ANPR would save gar­daí a lot of time as in­stead of hav­ing to stop ev­ery car to check tax and in­sur­ance the tech­nol­ogy in the new garda car would do it for them.
