The Pennsylvania State Police has a new computer system for issuing traffic tickets that officials say improves safety and uses troopers’ time more efficiently.
The department says issuing tickets takes about half the time it used to, so troopers spend less time exposed to traffic. The new system also lets the state police send citations to district courts electronically.
Tickets are now being issued on legal-size thermal paper that’s considered less confusing than the old carbon copy tickets.
The Pennsylvania State Police Traffic and Criminal Software also provides automatic checks of state and national databases of drivers’ license and registration information.
