Pr. George's police issuing electronic tickets

By Washington Post Editors

Prince George's County police are now issuing electronic tickets to drivers who speed or commit other traffic violations.

Police say they can also give out electronic warnings and equipment repair orders. From their cruisers, officers scan driver's license barcodes, and the system automatically fills out a traffic document with a person's information.

Officers also can access records to see a driver's previous traffic stops, view photos from the Motor Vehicle Administration to verify someone's identity, and check if there are arrest warrants on file.

Authorities say the system boosts safety by reducing the time officers and motorists have to spend on stops. Drivers will receive printed copies of their violations.

If P.G. also get rid of all the DIRTY cops in this county things may also get better. You should see how a lot of these criminals are living and the vehicles they drive. You know they're on the take in more ways than one but they get away with it just like the elected scumbags who have sold us all out!
