An adequate enforcement process is essential to make road traffic fines effective. Automatising such process is intended to provide such effectiveness. However, current enforcement practices do not achieve this goal, as they usually have weaknesses regarding the reliable identification of the offender, the immediacy of feedback after the violation and the completeness of offence description. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs) technologies may be introduced to contribute to these issues. To enable such integration, a complete model of this process must be built. Based on the VERA2 model and the Spanish traffic legislation, in this work an enhanced model is proposed that identifies the stakeholders, the process entities, the data at stake and their interchanges. Its suitability to represent current enforcement systems (particularly the Spanish ESTRADA and the French CSA) is evaluated. Furthermore, based on this model, the integration of the ITS-related technologies is analysed, as well as their suitability compared with current approaches.
