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

This article describes the similarities and differences in automated enforcement systems in the U.S. and the European Union. The author suggests that the two communities would do well to share experiences in dealing with common problems, as well as in the procurement of new systems and services. Automated enforcement began in the European Union in the 1980s to prosecute speeding and red-light running. It was introduced in the 1980s in the U.S. to support more efficient toll payment systems, then later for use in red-light enforcement. The author notes there are many differences in how this technology is used, as well as the authority in allowing it to be used. He suggests that as pressure on government resources has grown, private sector support to provide enforcement services has become more attractive.
