License Plate Recognition (LPR)

Texas license plate example

License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology automatically reads license plate characters using optical character recognition. Using a mobile LPR, which employs several vehicle-mounted cameras to verify plates in all campus lots, our parking officers are able to quickly scan parked vehicles, increasing the accuracy of identifying unauthorized or unregistered vehicles parked on campus. LPR improves enforcement efficiency and further protects permit holder rights.

Vehicles must be parked so the license plate can be scanned on the drive lane. Under Texas law, most vehicles require both a front and rear plate, but if your car comes from a state that does not have that requirement, head into the space so your rear license plate will be facing out for the reader. 

Please Note: License plate information is only used on campus for validating a driver's parking.
