Mark,

ANPR cameras recognise number plates automatically, not faces. It cannot, therefore, ascertain your previous convictions.

Trusting this is of assistance,

Mark,

Just because a car registered to a particular person is being driven on the road, that does not automatically mean that the driver is the registered keeper. There would require to be additional evidence to adduce whom was driving.

As noted previously, the purpose of the camera is to identify cars, not drivers.
