That is, an automated and AI cop car that would sneak itself behind the bushes and use license plate scanners, facial recognition and other such revenue-raising technologies to automatically issue paying' paper.
All the time. Everywhere.
No more need to pay cops to do it some of the time.
In other words, no more part-time, scattershot enforcement of traffic laws. It would become much harder to flout – or evade – any traffic law. Everything from "speeding" to driving around without all your papers in order. Auto Cop would know – immediately.
And there's no bargaining with him.
But why should anyone object to (as Ford itself puts it) more "efficient" enforcement of the law? This assumes, of course, that the laws being enforced are reasonable, defensible, etc.
They're not, of course. And everyone knows it.
