Optimal Mounting Position For LPC Cameras

I've been reading up on the optimal mounting position for LPC cameras. Geovision prefers mounting the camera at about 3m (9 feet) high with a 30º angle looking down at the front plate of the car. Other manufacturers advise one should avoid the headlights and instead mount the camera low to the road and capture the rear plate. Presumably the differing recommendations depend on the techniques the cameras use for reliably capturing plates.

I'd appreciate hearing how people have mounted different brands and models of LPC or LPR cameras and specifically whether they were mounted high or low and which plate was being captured. Thank you for your help.
