The police and have cameras at many intersections (the Starburst, to name one). Can recordings from these be used to identify the vehicle? If not, why not?

The cameras don't always capture the license plates clearly but I'm sure those cameras are at least sometimes the source of footage police release showing vehicles of interest.
