Pro:

If licensee information is uploaded to SAFER

Use transponders; smart tags etc.

If it reduces costs and is legal

Unfair; need to treat all carriers the same

Larger licensees not necessarily more compliant

Some support for finding a technological option to decals; but decals still represent a low cost/low tech means of threshold enforcement.

More than half of respondents might support decal alternative under certain circumstances

Thanks to all who contributed.
