I believe there is:

The Safe-T-Cam system is an automated monitoring system that uses digital camera technology to read heavy vehicles’ number plates to enable the RTA to monitor heavy vehicle movements. 

It can read number plates automatically and it can automatically tell the difference between cars and trucks.  It was set up in 1995.  It is now in South Australia as well.
