It's early on a Monday morning and you've hit the snooze button for the third time. You've completely forgotten it's a street sweeping day and that you could get a ticket for not moving your car. For the city of Richmond, California that is suffering a budget crisis and will be losing police officers this year they don't have the manpower to issue tickets to you snoozing in bed. So they'll be using cameras mounted to the sweepers to record the license plate numbers of offenders and promptly mail you a ticket. How can you be sure the sweeper is in the right place at the right time? They already have GPS locators on them to insure everything is swept at the proper time and place. That's some high- tech street sweeping.
