How come Plate Recognizer is not able to correctly read this license plate?

Our service offers great ALPR accuracy but it won’t work in all cases. 

As a rule of thumb if a human can read the plate, then our ALPR engine should be able to as well. If a human can squint and read most of the plate except for maybe a character or two, then there’s a decent chance that our ALPR engine can decode it. However, if a human has a really hard time reading the license plate, then Plate Recognizer may not be able to read it correctly.

If you repeatedly get a few characters of the plate decoded incorrectly, please double check the Region ID.  Please refer to Plate Recognizer API Docs for all the region codes.

Also, please share a few images with us via email so we can take a look.
