Now the police are getting many more license plate scanners

The police across the country are embarking on a serious rearmament. At least when it comes to the so-called ANPG cameras also known as license plate scanners.

The police now monitor drivers and general traffic even more. A further 246 number plate scanners will be put into use later this year.

This form of automatic traffic control was first used in Denmark in 2016. At that time, they started with 24 stationary cameras and 48 specially equipped police cars.

Today there are far more. And now there are even more to come. This is written by FDM .

In fact, the number of license plate scanners will more than double. The National Police states in a reply to the Danish Parliament's Legal Committee that it expects all cameras to be in place before the end of the year.

At FDM, it is also seen as a positive thing that the country's police forces can now monitor and chase even more motorists. Although the organization does not like the fact that the police store data on innocent drivers, which the others are not allowed to use, for 60 days.

– FDM would like that if the car in question cannot be linked to an offence, the information was deleted immediately afterwards, says the interest body.

But it seems to remain wishful thinking on the part of FDM. Because there is nothing to indicate that the police are told to delete this kind of data. So not for the 60 days.

Conversely, the police in other countries immediately delete useless data about innocent drivers. Another thing is that the police in other countries do not have it as easy as in Denmark.

In Italy, for example, the government is tired of how the police, cities and municipalities harass drivers to make money. That is why Transport Minister Matteo Salvini has banned certain speed cameras. Read more about it here .
