Traffic Tickets Going High-Tech: E-Ticket Devices to Be Tested

First we had red-light cameras snapping photos of intersection scofflaws and generating an almost automatic ticket.
Now, it looks like we could have motorcycle traffic cops issuing citations from a little handheld device, called an E-ticket machine, rather than whipping out the ticket pad and writing a ticket by hand.
They are taking all the sport out of cop-driver hide-and-seek.
The Dallas Police Department plans to use 50 E-ticket gadgets in a test program involving motorcycle officers because statistically they write more tickets than other patrol officers.
The gizmos are billed as more efficient because an issuing officer can get the information into the city’s database within about three days versus the 10 days it takes to enter a conventional citation.
E-tickets also take less time to fill out, sending cop and driver along their merry ways, well, at least one of them, in a briefer time, plus the officer can use the e-chine to scan the pulled-over driver’s license for warrants and such.
