More than two million motorists could be wrongly identified for fines by Ulez or speed cameras every day, a Government commissioner has warned ministers.
Professor Fraser Sampson, the surveillance camera commissioner, said the ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera network’s three per cent error rate for reading car number plates meant there were “significant risks” of penalty notices being wrongly issued to innocent motorists.
3% error rate? That’s appalling. How did anyone roll out a tech that shite?
