- PRISM-Based Automated Ramp Screening
by Kentucky Transportation Cabinet
Kentucky has deployed a PRISM-Based Automated Ramp Screening System (PARSS) at its Boone County commercial vehicle enforcement facility on southbound I-71. This system automatically identifies commercial vehicles as they enter the weigh station utilizing a 915 MHz dedicated short range communication (DSRC) reader, an automated license plate reader (LPR), and an automated USDOT reader (USDOTR). This system has been identified as a “best practice” for commercial vehicle enforcement by the Federal Highway Administration and is one of very few systems in the United States that is able to automatically identify and screen commercial vehicles at the vehicle level. This system allows Kentucky State Police - Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (KSP-CVE) officers to be more efficient with their time and make more effective decisions on which vehicles to stop for inspection.
