    Got ANPR'd tonight

    Was on the way back from Broad green Liverpool seeing my mother in the hospital.

    Was followed for a good 2 miles by a BMW X5 with the ANPR camera on the roof. Pulled along side me at the roundabout, then hung back to the right of me for a good 5 minutes.

    Times like that I wished I had a neon lighting board to say I've paid me road tax, insured and MOT'd

    Was a first for me.

    Anyone else had this?

    Nah you must look dodgy

    I thought I was being followed by a traffic BMW last week but could of just been coincidence. Was behind me for quite a while.

    Yes ANPR is instant. They were probably following just to see what happened. Bad driving, taking off as he's being followed, etc. Police just go on their instincts sometimes, especially if the driver looks nervous when they're there!

    Usually yes but sometimes they might do further checks which require them hanging around a little longer.

    ANPR = Automatic Numberplate Recognition.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they thought it was dodgy

    Knew straight away it was an ANPR car, could see the camera a mile off in the rear mirror.

    Wasn't too familiar with the roads around there, didn't do anything out of the ordinary

    The cops love my car. My plates were stolen a few months back and used for stealing fuel, makes me look great!
