The paper will discuss the implementation of a novel system using a black box to make the overspeeding ticketing system more robust. The system will provide a physical proof of the drivers driving statistics. The system consist of three parts. First being a black box implementation using a raspberry pi 3b+ on the drivers side. It will track the current speed of the car via OBD-ii port with timestamp. Second being IOT device on the sheriff’s side which can fetch the speed information for past 20 minutes (speed information before vehicle came to compelete stantstill) from the black box and push it to the cloud. And the third part is cloud infrastructure which will receive the information from all the IoT devices and store in a S3 bucket. The sheriff can see the visualization of this data w.r.t. time on IoT device. The system will help sheriff make much informed decision as they will have past driving statistics of the driver. This will also help eliminate the corner cases such as over-speeding ticket when changing lanes or overtaking a vehicle.
