Prince George’s County police now are issuing electronic tickets to drivers who speed or commit other traffic violations.

Police say they also can give out electronic warnings and equipment repair orders. From their cruisers, officers scan driver’s license barcodes, and the system automatically fills out a traffic document with a person’s information.

Officers also can access records to see a driver’s previous traffic stops, view photos from the Motor Vehicle Administration to verify someone’s identity, and check if arrest warrants are on file.

Authorities say the system boosts safety by reducing the time officers and motorists have to spend on stops. Drivers will receive printed copies of their violations.
