Augmented Speed Enforcement (aSE) Part 2 of 2 PATH

Although fewer vehicle miles are traveled in rural areas than urban areas, there are approximately 42 percent more fatal crashes in rural areas compared to urban areas. Aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding are primary factors contributing to major-injury and fatality crashes. Moreover, studies have shown higher crash rates at specific highway locations such as work zones that temporarily set lower speed limits. Work zone crashes rates are especially high on rural two-lane two-way highways. To reduce traffic fatalities and injuries, technologies have been developed and applied to automatically detect traffic violations. One technology employed to proactively manage speeding is Automated Enforcement Systems (ASE), which supplement traditional traffic law enforcement activities by remotely detecting speed violators and automatically processing speeding citations.
