Automated Traffic Enforcement Safety Device ( ATESD)

School Zones on our roadways give drivers and schoolchildren more time to recognize, react and avoid crashes. The installation of Automated Traffic Enforcement Safety Devices (ATESD) will increase safety throughout Georgia’s School Zones.

Apply for ATESD Permit

School systems wanting to place an Automated Traffic Enforcement Safety Device within a school zone must first apply for and secure a permit from the Georgia DOT.  Interested parties can apply for a permit by completing the permit form.
