        In this video, adapted from QUEST, learn about how traffic enforcement patrols in San Francisco and many other cities around the world are turning to a new, sophisticated tool that makes targeting and identifying speeding motorists much easier. Using a device called LIDAR, or Light Detection And Ranging, police officers are able to detect the speed and distance of a given object from hundreds of meters away with stunning efficiency and accuracy.
