Nestor, Inc. Announces Contract Extension and Expansion With Delaware Department of Transportation

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwire - August 13, 2008) - Nestor, Inc. (OTCBB: NEST), a leading provider of advanced automated traffic enforcement solutions and services, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nestor Traffic Systems, Inc. ("NTS"), has entered into a contract extension and expansion with the Delaware Department of Transportation ("DelDOT") to continue supporting Delaware's Electronic Red Light Safety Program.

NTS has been providing services to DelDOT since 2004. With the contract extension and expansion, DelDOT has committed to an extension of three years plus a minimum of twenty additional approaches to be protected by NTS's patented CrossingGuard® system, which is based on advanced digital technology and provides unique safety features and advanced client support capabilities. The contract addendum will expand upon the past four years of improving intersection safety and reducing the number of red-light violations throughout the State of Delaware. Since 2004, 16 of the 20 intersections in Delaware that have CrossingGuard® installed have experienced a decrease in total crashes.

By entering into the contract addendum, DelDOT has illustrated its confidence that NTS is the only partner to assist DelDOT in its unequalled commitment to safety. Delaware is currently the only statewide red-light program in the nation. DelDOT firmly believes that NTS is the proven vendor of the highest level of technology coupled with an unrivaled commitment to making intersections safer and offering the best customer support in the industry. After working with NTS for four years, DelDOT recognizes that no other competitor could perform the kind of services with the level of excellence that NTS has consistently demonstrated.

"We are very pleased to continue our relationship with DelDOT. By entering into a contract extension and expansion with NTS, DelDOT has illustrated its commitment to ensuring the safety of its citizens and all those who drive upon its roads. We are honored to be a part of such a commitment and will continue to provide DelDOT with the best services and support possible," said Clarence A. Davis, NTS Chief Executive Officer.

NTS, through its CrossingGuard® product, will continue to provide DelDOT with the ability to capture multiple frames of red light violations, providing law enforcement officials with the ability to objectively review an event and the circumstances under which it occurred. With this level of fair and objective evidence, officials can be certain that events are reviewed in the proper context and with the highest level of integrity. CrossingGuard® has a less than three percent court challenge rate and a less than one percent overturn rate system-wide.
