Surely the rego number can be made visible? Can’t they enhance the image to get the detail?

I note it is the usual “white Commodore” but this one has some distinctive features.

You watch too much TV. You can’t add data/info that is note there. Some imaging software can kinda fill in the gaps where it recognises something missing but as you can see in the image you can’t even really make out any of the blue in the lettering.
