ERAD Technology: New Device Allows State Police To Swipe Motorists’ Prepaid Cards To Seize Money

Published on Jun 14,2016

Police in Oklahoma are now able to seize money from motorists even if they don’t have physical cash on them – and even if those people are merely suspected of a crime. Using a new device called an ERAD, or Electronic Recovery and Access to Data machine, Oklahoma Highway Patrol officers can now swipe prepaid cards if they suspect a driver of obtaining money illegally. The device, manufactured by Texas-based ERAD Group, works on “open loop” debit cards, like prepaid cards offered by Visa and American Express, and gives officers the ability to drain or freeze an account on the spot without the need for pesky warrants or court appearances.
