PHOTO ENFORCEMENT : ITS MEETS CONTROVERSY

Photo enforcement has been around for a number of years, but has been getting more attention recently. Across the nation, states are taking diverse approaches to implementation. Legislation has been enacted and enforcement processes are being revised to address deployment of this leading technology. Photo enforcement is an opportunity for department of safety and enforcement personnel to partner with department of transportation (DOT) and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) experts. In many cases the enforcement and DOT industries are working together to make the roadways safer and facilitate smooth traffic flow. Controversy and misconceptions surround photo enforcement. The motoring public envisions that this enforcement technology is generating large sums of money and taxpayers are suggesting that this type of enforcement approach is a new tax. This paper will address factors such as trends, varied implementation results and public relations activities
