    PLANO, Texas and PROVIDENCE, R.I., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In an
 agreement aimed at improving intersection safety and reducing red light-
 running related crashes, EDS (NYSE:   EDS) and Nestor Traffic Systems, Inc.
 (NTS) today announced an agreement through which the companies will market
 technology to catch drivers running red lights and then process the resulting
 citations.
     Through the agreement, the companies will market a combination of NTS'
 patented video-based automated red light enforcement system, known as
 CrossingGuard(R), and EDS' integrated camera interface and state-of-the-art
 citation processing services for multiple jurisdictions.  As part of the
 effort, EDS will assume $25 million of citation processing over the next
 10 years.  More importantly, the relationship between EDS and NTS creates
 superior full-service red light enforcement capabilities that position both
 companies to grow market share.
     "This combination creates comprehensive enforcement services to counter
 red light running and promote safer roadways," said Matt Chambers, general
 manager of EDS Administrative Process Management.  "By combining EDS' business
 processing back-office services with Nestor's CrossingGuard product, we bring
 to market a fully integrated, digital video solution that meets the
 flexibility of individual police jurisdictions while increasing public
 safety."
 
     Changing Driving Behavior to Save Lives
     Red light runners are responsible for an estimated 260,000 crashes each
 year, of which approximately 750 are fatal, according to the Insurance
 Institute for Highway Safety.  At the same time, in a study by the same
 organization, red light running violations dropped a total of 42 percent after
 red light camera programs were implemented.
     NTS' CrossingGuard product represents the next generation of automated
 enforcement by using video to monitor and detect violations.  For each red
 light running incident, CrossingGuard records a full video sequence of the
 violation -- often from multiple camera angles.  Unlike other systems that
 only provide a few still images of a violation, CrossingGuard's violation
 video evidence serves as an objective eyewitness to what actually happened at
 the intersection.
     In addition, CrossingGuard is the first to offer a safety-enhancing
 feature that can actually help to prevent intersection collisions.  When
 CrossingGuard predicts that a vehicle will not stop in time for a red light,
 it sends a signal to the traffic controller to briefly extend the red light
 for cross traffic -- to prevent vehicles from entering the intersection when a
 red light violation is imminent.
     Violation images are recorded digitally and transmitted electronically to
 EDS for processing.  EDS will distribute citations within three business days.
 In contrast, conventional camera technology takes up to 14 days to distribute
 citations.
     "This relationship offers the nation's municipalities the most
 comprehensive automated enforcement solution available," said David Fox, NTS'
 president and CEO.  "Together, we offer best-in-class innovative technology
 for red light violation detection and enforcement, combined with the most
 efficient business processes for citation delivery and public support.  Our
 clients will now benefit from the best the industry has to offer."
     EDS currently supports red light services in 13 jurisdictions in Maryland
 and three jurisdictions in North Carolina; NTS serves municipalities in
 Virginia and California, with additional installations underway in California,
 Illinois and Florida.
