When security games hit traffic: A deployed optimal traffic enforcement system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Road accidents are the leading causes of death among youths and young adults worldwide. Efficient traffic enforcement is an essential, yet complex, component in preventing road accidents. In this article, we present a novel model, an optimizing algorithm and a deployed system which together mitigate many of the computational and real-world challenges of traffic enforcement allocation in large road networks. Our approach allows for scalable, coupled and non-Markovian optimization of multiple police units and guarantees optimality. Our deployed system, which utilizes the proposed approach, is used by the Israeli traffic police and is shown to provide meaningful benefits compared to existing standard traffic police enforcement practices.
