Common Ground: The Need for More International Compliance in Enforcement Strategy

This article offers a comparative look at how automated enforcement is approached in the European Union (EU) and the U.S. It relates that since the late 1980s, automated enforcement has been widely used in the EU for detecting and prosecuting violations such as speeding and red light running. Legislation allowing automated enforcement has been primarily set at the national level, and as a result, a pan-EU type approval standard is not in place. In the U.S., automated enforcement was introduced in the 1980s for supporting a more efficient toll payment system. In the late 1980s, the technology was used for speed enforcement, and red-light enforcement came about in the early 1990s. Individual states typically have the responsibility for enforcing most automated enforcement programs.
