    the police in some municipalities have started using License Plate Readers, but the usually seem to be mounted on patrol cars. The one exception is Tiburon, a wealthy community north of the Golden Gate, which mounted LPR's on poles at the entrances to town so that they can keep track of the riff-raff entering and leaving.

    I must say, though, that as a motorcyclist I appreciate the signal cameras replacing sensor loops. In this state, the loops are required to be able to detect motorcycles (and I believe bicycles), but in these tight budgetary times, keeping them adjusted is real low on cities' priority lists.
