Well, it can show the plate is there but it certainly cannot read it because the plate is hardly bigger than a foot.
Not to mention that the plate is not mounted on the roof of your car.

Well, high altitude spying in general.
Is there any reason why satellites aren't better for this? Seems like a lot of work to release balloons and retrieve them day after day.
Why can't we just use one of the already over 5,000 satellites in orbit?
