License plate trackers could boost revenues [Letter]

February 24, 2014

Regarding your article about license plate tracking, for a state that's always looking for new revenue, how about using the technology to search Maryland apartment complexes for out-of-state plates, then run names and addresses to identify those living in Maryland who haven't registered their cars with the MVA ("Homeland Security drops license plate tracking plan," Feb. 20)?

While it might not seem fair, Maryland could pick up 6 percent of the value of each vehicle and put those funds toward the state Transportation Fund.
