Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have been patrolling area roads with a cruiser equipped with cameras and a computer to scan licence plates to detect driving violations. This cruiser is referred to as an Automatic Licence Plate Recognition Vehicle (ALPR) vehicle.

There are three cameras equipped on the cruiser that can scan motor vehicle licence plates from behind, approaching or adjacent positions. This equipment can detect violations such as suspended driving, expired validation stickers, expired driver’s licence and other incidences where there is a vehicle of interest.

On July 5, 2015 at 7:48 p.m. officers stopped a motor vehicle on County Road 93 after the ALPR cruiser alerted them that the owner of the vehicle is a suspended driver. The driver of the motor vehicle was the registered owner and a suspended driver. A 22 year old female from Mississauga was charged with Driving While Under suspension contrary to the Highway Traffic.
