ERAD on hold in Oklahoma… for now

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin put a temporary hold on the use of the ERAD system by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

KFOR news reports:

On Friday, Gov. Fallin directed her Cabinet secretary of safety and security to delay the use of the devices.

“The Department of Public Safety needs to formulate a clear policy for using this new technology,” said Fallin. “It can be a viable tool for law enforcement only if authorities are able to ensure Oklahoma motorists and others driving through our state that it will be used appropriately.”

I thought this announcement might be coming since several groups opposed the current use of these devices by the OHP.

While this might not be a clear victory, it at least will slow the process and allow the people to have a better look at what Oklahoma law enforcement is doing.
