Bossier Parish Sheriff Office Installing License Plate Readers
According to news sources, there will be 44 license plate readers installed in major road ways with intent to find uninsured vehicles.
From what I can understand about these creepy cameras is that they will take a picture of every driver going through intersections. The police department will then investigate if the vehicles driving through have insurance or not. They will then send a citation. If you provide the proper information proving that you have insurance the citation will then be waived. However, If there is no proof of insurance there will be a warrant for the owner of the vehicle within 45 days.
This doesn't make since to me. I thought traffic cameras where illegal. Maybe I am wrong, but I do know that there was a recent law stating that they must have signs identifying red light intersections, according to NOLA Times.
Apparently this is supposed to be a less invasive way of fight the increasing number of uninsured vehicles on the road, but I don't think so.
