Default ATS In Retreat Over ANPR

Camera Fraud Article: ATS In Retreat Over ANPR

American Traffic Solutions has removed an Automatic Number Plate Recognition device after its use was discovered and publicized by CameraFRAUD (”Scottsdale Secretly Tracking License Plates,” Jan 8). The auxiliary unit was quietly tied into an existing red light and speed-on-green enforcement system at the corner of McDowell and Scottsdale Rd in Scottsdale, Arizona.


According to sources, city leaders may not have been aware of the installation and the contract with ATS contained no provision for the use of such devices. The City of Scottsdale extensively utilizes Automated Ticketing Machines.

Appian Technology, the U.K.-based firm that manufactures the units, states in promotional materials (.pdf, 1.3MB) that the cameras are “specifically developed for military image processing applications” with the optional ability to track RFID-enabled license plates.


The ANPR camera was removed sometime around the beginning of February. It’s unknown when it was originally installed.
