Does an ALPR capture any Personally Identifiable Information (PII)?

ALPRs do not collect information on who is driving or riding in the vehicle, therefore, it is not considered Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The technology does not capture images of pedestrians or passerby. The ALPR cameras take still images of cars passing through the lens (not video), and cannot follow or track vehicles once they leave the camera’s view.
