DO YOU HAVE THAT ON VIDEO?
In 1995, the Texas legislature passed a bill that required the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to install and operate automated highway-rail intersection (HRI) enforcement systems as a demonstration project. The purpose of the project was to determine whether the current technology could adequately identify violations. TxDOT selected three sites; and the systems, once installed and activated, photographed vehicles driving under and around the gate arms. Depending on the site, a vendor or the police department mailed education letters to violators. A significant finding was the identification of types of violations that exist at gated HRIs. On average, one violation occurred per gate activation.
