"The story about the laptop-based system used to issue quick traffic judgments came up in 2000.
'The software is being tested by three judges in the state of Espirito Santo. It is part of a scheme called Justice-on-Wheels, which is designed to speed up Brazil's overloaded legal system by dealing immediately with straightforward cases.
Most people are happy to have the matters sorted out on the spot, says the program's creator, Judge Pedro Valls Feu Rosa, who sits in the state's Supreme Court of Appeals. He adds that the idea is not to replace judges but to make them more efficient.'
The software works by asking simple questions about the incident and uses a simple rules-based system. A printout of the judgment is available immediately.
