Gatso sets a new standard in traffic enforcement
Operationally, Gatso says the performance of the platform addresses something that concerns authorities, particularly in Europe, where, when two vehicles simultaneously run a red light, current technology is unable to capture both offenders, so only one gets prosecuted. “The T-Series changes that situation so that we have provided much fairer enforcement,” said Timo Gatsonides, managing director of Gatso.
Not surprising. Add to that the plans to add speed monitoring and even to see if you are using a cellphone and one gets the feeling these robots will control our lives soon enough. I wouldn't even be surprised if someday they are programmed to solicit and accept bribes.
This will be the future... Robots will take over.
The government is not your friend!!!

@Double Tap - don't think this is the case, but did you mean to imply that you were against democracy?
I feel so much safer now!
... where WILL they draw the line ???
I prefer the cops to pull me over the old-fashioned way and give me a ticket ... Lord knows they do it enough as it is.
Twice in the last four months.
Don't need no stinkin' cameras doin' it to me too ...
... it's just about the only reason I'm thankful to be in Michigan, where red-light and speed-cameras have been deemed unconstitutional.
it's the dog's fault
Eventually, the mandated in-car brain scanner will automatically, seamlessly and wirelessly send your info to .gov when it detects you were even just thinking about not stopping for an amber light.
Big brother is watching you.....
Gubmint isn't the answer to the problem.
It IS the problem.
Winston Smith weeps.
Wonder if it will fit on my SLR camera. Maybe a nearby one might fall off its mount sometime and I'll try it...
I like the capabilities of the camera. There are still those who want to argue that the first pic is not their car, they're not driving, and they're not behind the line when the light is red, and then the second picture is not them, the camera took the picture while the light was green, and the video is also not them. In that case, give them 150-300 digital shots of them going through a red light, it's digital, no real expense in doing so. Whatever it takes to get people to stop on red. Big thumbs up. booyah!
My corners are clean now, thank you!
That's just great!!!!!
