Automated Traffic Fines Using Multi-Vehicle Spyware Automated Traffic Fines Using Multi-Vehicle Sensors
Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication Allows for Automated Traffic Fines:
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 vehicle-to-vehicle communication 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 system will be tested in "the coming months."
Just how much of distraction might this be for drivers attempting to communicate with other drivers as witnesses, etc.? Isn't there enough distraction with the devices we already have?

said by rcdailey:That was my first thought. How do you "point out" who you want to report? What is the range on that report. Odds are the ones you want to report are the ones doing at least 10 MPH over you with two and three lane changes.
Just how much of distraction might this be?
Would being able to report be worth being able to be reported?
I'm not seeing enough pluses to make this worth while. I see big issues getting/keeping the data up to date.
