One main reason for automatic enforcement, except of the safety situation, is that the police will not be able to take direct action to each detected violator at normal police enforcement activities in some environments. By using detectors and camera technology the violators can be identified and sanctioned Though it’s almost three decades of use, automated traffic enforcement has mainly been
applied to speed and red light violations. In the recent years, however, there has been an extension to other violations, e.g., following distance, lane keeping, and toll payment violations. The increased use of digital video and image processing technology, as well as the electronic identification of vehicles, has paved the way for extending the applications to a still wider spectrum of violations, as well as making the enforcement considerably more efficient in the future.
