ANPR and banned drivers


New member
So, I was wondering how an ANPR can catch a banned driver? I get it recognises the vehicle registration, if not caught by police while physically driving banned (being pulled over) can you get a letter to say the car was spotted on x date after the offence was committed?
ANPR may be used to identify a vehicle committing a moving traffic offence. If that has happened then a letter would be sent to the registered keeper of the vehicle asking for confirmation as to who was driving before any charges are laid. This letter would usually need to be sent within 14 days of the incident.
