As if a paper ticket wasn’t bad enough. How’d you like to get an “electronic traffic ticket”? There’s a new way to get a ticket here in Miami-Dade County, as the police department is going high-tech with new electronic citations.
Because, “I can get the stop done, get back on the road (and) go fight crime,” per Miami-Dade police Sgt. George Wilhelm, the time spent waiting to get that dreaded ticket is reduced.
“When you run the license of the vehicle you stopped or the driver’s license of the offender, it automatically puts the information into the program for you,” Wilhelm said.
The e-citation is the Miami-Dade Police Department‘s new and improved and more efficient way of passing out tickets. Why? Because, “we’re reducing the amount of errors, rejections, or tickets going to court. And, they’re being dismissed because there was an error on it by the officer,” Wilhelm said. “We would write a ticket, say, today by tonight. We would enter it into a data sheet tomorrow morning.”
“It also makes it easier for the violator to read their citation. Why? Because now it’s printed. It’s clear. It’s legible.”
The system went live Monday across the county. 1,600 police units now have the capability to print e-tickets.
