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