The new automated traffic fine system incorporates sensors built into vehicles and Communication and Information Technologies (CITs)
If you're the type of driver that leans more toward offensive rather than defensive driving, you might want to take it easy on the speeding and pay attention to those stoplights -- systems to
automate traffic fines
are in the making.
Researchers from the Universidad Carlos III Madrid's (UC3M) Information and Communication Technology Security Group have been working on the E-SAVE project, which aims to use IT to improve traffic regulation.
The new automated traffic fine system incorporates sensors built into vehicles and Communication and Information Technologies (CITs). The new system has three main components: a mechanism that allows drivers to report others while maintaining anonymity and authenticity; a way for sending the notification of a fine directly to the vehicle in question, and a mechanism that allows the offending driver to create electronic evidence in order to defend him/herself in the case that they receive a notification. The offending driver can do this by "asking" surrounding drivers with sensors to be witnesses to the scene.
The whole system is based on
via sensors, where cars can trade information in the flow of traffic and allow for crimes to be reported.
A huge aspect of the new system is to keep driver information confidential so that credentials are not stolen or abused. It's also important that driver information is updated and accurate for the purpose of sending fines correctly. The team is doing this through a project called PRECIOUS, where cryptographic methods of anonymous authentication and zero knowledge tests are used. This rids the duplication of information.
The system will be tested in "the coming months."

whether it's a good idea or not - i've heard of people jamming the brakes on during a situ like that. then claim injury on the person behind them who clearly didn't give enough space between vehicles.
the claim to see a deer running past or some such.

Yeah, but I'm not trying to cause an accident (unlike the guy who is now behind me). I'm just trying to go to work.

Guy that did that in CO got put in jail because he ended up killing the person behind him. The guy that got killed was driving in the left lane. Guy that killed him passed him, got in the left lane then slammed on his breaks. I forgot how many years he got but I wonder if he thinks it was worth it now - although I am sure he still blames the guy he killed.
