MnDOT Considers Purchasing Cameras or Portable Readers to Aid in Detection of HOT Lane Cheats

Star Tribune reports that the Minnesota Department of Transportation is looking into the purchase of technology to help with enforcement of I-35 MnPASS lane rules. State Patrol troopers currently rely on unaided observation to catch solo drivers using the HOT lanes without a transponder, but MnDOT may install cameras or equip troopers with portable readers to aid in the detection of scofflaws.
