Capture Cars can be any type of vehicle, parked up anywhere – from driveways and road sides, to car parks and compounds. What they have in common is that they are fitted with recording and security equipment, such as cameras or SmartWater, which can be hidden anywhere on the inside or outside the vehicle.
