The Volpe Center is conducting preliminary qualitative research on the feasibility of using automated license plate readers (ALPRs) as countermeasures to improve traffic safety.  Within traffic safety, the emphasis will be on license offenses, including revoked, suspended, or restricted licenses. 

Using case studies of local law enforcement agencies, the research shall examine the full range of issues associated with the implementation and use of ALPRs for traffic safety purposes, including:

- Extent of ALPR use for traffic safety purposes (overall and relative to other purposes)
- Development, implementation, and maintenance of ALPR databases (e.g., "Hot Lists")
- Cost to deploy and maintain ALPRs (including training)
- Effectiveness of ALPRs
- Benefits/value/usefulness of deploying ALPRs for traffic safety purposes
- Challenges and problems encountered when utilizing ALPRs for traffic safety purposes
- Legal issues surrounding the use of ALPRs and how have they been addressed
- Law enforcement acceptance for traffic safety purposes
- Community acceptance for traffic safety purposes
- Privacy concerns
- Other issues or concerns

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
