Summary Information

Integrated Safety and Security Enforcement Systems (ISSES) are designed to improve the efficiency of roadside screening of commercial trucks by providing actionable, real-time information to roadside inspectors and automatically identifying higher-risk trucks. The nation's first installation of an ISSES was at the weigh station on Interstate 75 in Laurel County near London, Kentucky in 2005. The I-75 ISSES was an integrated system that consisted of a radiation monitor, thermal inspection device, laser scanner and vehicle detector, license plate recognition system and a USDOT number reader. The first ISSES installment cost $350,000. Two subsequent ISSES installments in Kentucky cost $500,000 each. Follow-up maintenance, monitoring and trouble-shooting costs were $109,000 per year per installation.
