MT. LEBANON, Penn. — Perched atop the Mt. Lebanon Police Department's traffic enforcement vehicle are two cameras that look like pairs of robot eyes.

They're watching passing motorists and parallel parked cars, photographing their license plates then comparing the numbers to a nationwide database of cars connected with crimes and ­­-- in the case of Mt. Lebanon -- a list of local parking scofflaws.
