DRN is private surveillance tool with billions of license plate scans

For $20, a Digital Recognition Network (DRN) customer can look up any license plate in the United States. The company sells the data to businesses, such as auto lenders, insurance carriers, repossession agents, and private investigators, but it can also be accessed by law enforcement. With more than 9,000,000,000 license plate scans in its database, it's a vast tracking tool that holds a massive amount of power.
