What's Happening In Your World
. If you’re dodging parking ticket fees, you may be in for quite the challenge. A new software called the license plate recognition technology, takes photographs of license plates and converts these images to text. The software helps city employees who issue parking tickets easily locate unpaid parking ticket holders with the snapshot of the person’s license plate. The software also detects if a vehicle has surpassed its parking time. Of course, it can also be used as a safety precaution as well. A website describing the use of the software paints a vivid picture of how it can save a life. “ Imagine a sad scenario that happens all too often. A child is kidnapped and witnesses have a brief description and a partial license plate of the kidnapper ,” the website says. “ The kidnapper unknowingly is trying to get away, and as he drives onto the freeway a camera monitoring the road snaps a picture of his car and the plate. It then converts the picture of the License Plate into numbers and letters. Within a matter of milliseconds, this license plate is checked against a criminal database (such as AMBER ALERTS in the USA). In milliseconds, the police are electronically updated with the last known location .” Cedar Rapids, IA, is already using the software. They spent $30,000 for the technology and says it was a wise investment because it saves city workers time. Cedar Rapids already has speed and red light cameras, so good luck attempting to dodge traffic and parking violations in that city.   Do you believe cities are going out of their way to charge their residents?
