Wisconsin State Patrol Going Electronic With Tickets

November 29, 2005

MILWAUKEE — The Wisconsin State Patrol is adding printers to its squad cars that will produce tickets with the push of a button, according to the Star Tribune. The new technology means troopers won’t have to write the tickets by hand. Once a trooper stops a vehicle and gets the driver’s license information, the trooper enters the name into a computer linked to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. If the trooper decides to issue a ticket, the technology will enter the name, address, and driver’s license number on an electronic ticket that is printed inside the car.The computer also saves the ticket data onto a disc, which the trooper gives to the area’s circuit court where a worker downloads the information into a computer. The information then becomes available online at Wisconsin Circuit Court Access, according to the Star Tribune. Equipping a squad car costs $2,000 to $7,000, depending on which options are picked.
