Abstract
Vehicles are ingenuous contraptions that have significantly revolutionized how human beings move from one place to another. However, inasmuch as they have liberated man, they have also become a major cause of fatalities and injuries. Technologies such as Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) have been utilized in advanced countries to make roads safer to use. However, they are not utilized in lesser developed countries such as Ghana to improve road safety. In this project, an ALPR system is implemented for the Ghanaian context. It is intended to recognize and detect number plates of non-commercial vehicles that jump the red light by using a mobile phone camera and Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
