The digital camera role in future violation enforcement

For years film-based cameras have photographed vehicles committing various violations. With the arrival of digital image capture technology, the movement to displace these cameras has begun bringing improved operating benefits. Digital traffic cameras are tailor-made for license plate recognition requirements, which are at the core of violation enforcement. Effective implementation will lead to moving an ever increasing volume of vehicles safely and efficiently through the ITS roadway infrastructure while minimising manpower enforcement resources. Practitioners - traffic management experts, governmental transportation authorities, police technical advisory staff, and prosecuting legal representatives - must be knowledgeable of the new technology's strong points and limitations in order that the full potential of this technology can be realized. This paper discusses key aspects of the new digital technology and identifies issues in preparing for the use and administration of violation data.
