Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) Publishes ‘Automated Enforcement in a New Era’ Report
The report outlines ‘only one vendor is currently testing camera technology in the U.S. to enforce distracted driving laws via a North Carolina program focused solely on commercial motor vehicles. Acusensus’ patented “Heads-Up” solution can detect and capture evidence of illegal driver behavior. The technology has the capability to detect illegal mobile phone use, seat belt noncompliance and speeding, and is equipped with automatic license plate recognition.”
The report recommends that a ‘new generation of technological advances is available to safety and enforcement professionals. GHSA believes the expanded use of automated enforcement (AE) is essential for reversing the unprecedented increase in motor vehicle-related deaths and injuries on the nation’s roadway.’
The report concludes that ‘automated enforcement affords states the ability to augment traditional enforcement efforts with proven technology that can prevent serious injuries and save lives.’
