So a few years ago I saw this white van driving around boston with what looked to be lasers or cameras all attached to it in all different directions. It gave off consistent laser warnings to my X50. I've always wondered what it was until now.
Apparently boston has vans and suv's that drive around with license plate scanners. The vans use cameras with infrared (which explains laser warnings) that scan hundreds of license plates in all directions. The van looks for cars with many unpaid parking tickets, and boots any cars with a certain amount.
Anyone else seen these things in boston or in their town?
