Be aware travelers. New Zealand Police are expanding their use of Automatic Number Plate Technology . This is the new police technology in New Zealand.
At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we do advise all travelers to get the rental car the day after arrival. You get the chance to rest before taking on Auckland traffic and exploring New Zealand. After a sleep at your accommodation and then getting a car ,is a better practice than from an airplane to driving a car.
This new Police technology tool uses cameras mounted on the roof of the patrol car car that scans the number plates of passing vehicles and feeds the information to a computer inside.
It checks the details against information held by police about vehicles of interest and if found, alerts the offer for follow up.
