E-Ticket program wins 2 awards

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court's electronic ticketing program has won awards from two safety associations.

In July, the high court was honored with the Best Practices Award by the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals for its electronic Citation and Warning System, also known as e-ticket.

The Supreme Court also won the Governors Highway Safety Association Peter K. O'Rourke Special Achievement Award for the e-ticket system in August.

E-Ticket was created in 2007 by the high court under the direction of the State Court Administration's Judicial Technology and Automation Committee. It allows law enforcement officers to use a hand-held device to scan a bar code on a driver's license and registration to quickly create a traffic ticket. That ticket can then be sent electronically to Odyssey - a new court case-management system - which sends driver conviction and suspension information electronically to the BMV. More than 125 law enforcement agencies in Indiana currently use e-Ticket.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
