Teton Pass Could Add Speed Cameras

“Big Brother” could begin watching drivers over Teton Pass if the Wyoming Legislature passes Senate File 3, proposed by the Joint Transportation, Highways & Military Affairs Interim Committee. The bill proposes the use of “automated vehicle identification systems” to enforce speed limits on some Wyoming highways, including Teton Pass in particular. According to the bill, an “automated vehicle identification system” means a device is used to automatically detect and record a violation of a traffic regulation and simultaneously record a photograph of the vehicle, the operator of the vehicle and the license plate of the vehicle, but it does not include a video system equipped on a school bus.” Currently, there are 19 states nationwide that have laws in place allowing the use of such devices. According to the Legislative Service Office, the Wyoming Department of Transportation maintains that if these systems are utilized along I-80, I-25, Teton Pass, and in construction zones and school zones, the citations could yield up to $7.2-million per year.
