It is the first program of its kind in the country.

If a driver is uninsured, the license plate reader will scan their car, and automatically issue a citation for $184, KOCO reported. Drivers who pay the fee avoid getting charged with driving without insurance, which goes on the person’s\ permanent record.

According to the Oklahoma Watch, Gatso USA, the Massachusetts company behind the devices, expects the system to yield more than $1.6 million of revenue for the state.

The network of nearly 40 license plate readers are expected to produce 20,000 citations a month, KOCO reported.
