The Washington Post has an interesting article on the repo business, focusing on their use of license plate readers to find cars.

Especially interesting (though I suppose not surprising) to learn that the company that provided the LPR tech keeps info on every license plate it reads, both to allow the repo industry to find currently non-delinquent cars in the future should they stop making payments, as well as to sell to insurance companies and others.
