What data is included in a license plate capture? Can officers see my medical history, social security number, or other personal data?

License plate captures include a color image of the vehicle, an infrared image of the license plate, the license plate read as interpreted by the system, a time and date stamp, GPS coordinates of the vehicle making the license plate capture, as well as information on the operator and the camera making the capture.  There is no personally identifiable information contained in a license plate capture.  In fact, only with permissible purpose under the Federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) may an officer connect a license plate to an individual by accessing other systems.  License plate reader data, by itself, is completely anonymous.
