Re: license plate scanners as deployed by the repo industry

This is happening on a massive scale in England too, repo companies buy ANPR
equipment, fit it to their vans and have a database of cars they are looking
for.
Some of them also do work for the police and are given access to the
government registration database so they can go looking for cars without
road tax, this has led to abuse of the data and the companies illegally
retaining it to augment their own data and then selling it on to other repo
companies so that when they're looking for a car, not only do they know that
make, model and finance address they also have the address of the registered
keeper, the colour and a free text entry that often contains police notes.

I am curious who the company in Texas is that appears to be consolidating
much 
of the data?
