asked on

Are the overhead Highway card readers dangerous?

I am specifically asking about the Mass Turnpike, under which many commuters pass, daily, and up to 6-8 times per day, M-F.


Could someone comment on this particular technology?


And whether they need to be stopped for public safety?


I have noticed that AM radio gets interference when passing underneath. That can't be good...

EZDriveMA use the DSRC radio standard (915 MHz, CEN 5.8 GHz, WAVE/G5 5.9 GHz, ISO 18000-63) which is similar to that used do detect the security tags that are used in the mall to prevent theft. It's a non-ionising form of radiation so the comments in your attached document about relative safety also apply to your gantries.
