This system represents the growing national trend of support for automated traffic enforcement systems. According to Assistant Chief Chip Simmons of the Pensacola Police Department, "Red light running is a serious problem in Pensacola; we hope to illustrate through this system the need for automated enforcement to help change driver behavior and save lives. The LaserCraft system clearly shows the violations captured at the intersection and leaves little doubt that a violation has occurred."
