Abstract:

An automated enforcement system is an electronic device used by law enforcement to enforce traffic laws. An automated speed enforcement system is an increasingly common type of automated enforcement system that monitors vehicle speeds and captures images of speed limit violators. A red light camera is also a common type of automated enforcement system. Even though automated speed enforcement systems differ from red light cameras in terms of technology and application, both are often accused of being deployed for revenue generation purposes. However, these accusations appear to be exaggerated after an examination of legal, engineering, and policy issues. This paper investigates the legal background for automated enforcement systems and the legal issues related to the argument that municipalities most often deploy the devices primarily for the purpose of revenue generation.
