The article discusses new technology to allow patrol cars to scan the license plates of surrounding vehicles as an officer drives around and cross reference them against a database. If the system finds a match to something like a stolen vehicle or a driver with an outstanding warrant, it notifies the officer so he can make the traffic stop. The potential benefit to police forces is huge. Nearly as great as the potential for the system’s abuse.
