A Bird’s-Eye View of Mass Turnpike AET Traffic, or “A Stroll Down the Red Carpet”

The Boston Globe gives its readers toll-collection camera views of a car passing through the Massachusetts Turnpike’s new AET collection points, reporting, “Driving down the Massachusetts Turnpike nowadays is like a stroll down the red carpet. Flashes are constantly firing on those new all-electronic toll collection gantries as cameras mounted on the metal frames snap photos of the front and back —and record a brief video — of each vehicle that passes underneath.” Addressing privacy concerns, officials point out that the camera images do not clearly show faces or vehicle interiors.
