Yes and no. The license plate readers are out there and a great tool for law enforcement. However, over the last several years with many cities installing red light enforcement cameras there was a big push for officers to issue front license plate citations so the camera could pick them out. This was particularly true in the cities of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.
