WiFi Speeding Ticket System Means More Fines for New Orleans
A new wireless speeding ticket system in New Orleans will enable police to issue more tickets than ever.

A new WiFi-enabled speeding ticket system in New Orleans will enable police to issue more tickets than ever. By automating the process, cops can pull you over and print out the ticket in a fraction of the time. That means more time to issue even more tickets to others.

Article Excerpt:
The department, which issues roughly 150,000 traffic tickets a year, is in the process of rolling out a new mobile ticketing system that combines handheld devices and portable printers to speed the ticketing process, as well as traffic court.
