Nestor Traffic Systems Selected for Major Sole Source Contract in Manteca, California

Unique Traffic Enforcement & Crash Prevention Technology Key

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - Nestor Traffic Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nestor, Inc. (OTCBB: NEST), announced today that it was selected to provide red light cameras at up to 10 intersections in the fast-growing City of Manteca, located in California's Central Valley region. Nestor's CrossingGuard® Automated Red Light Enforcement system's unique tracking technology makes it the only system capable of accurately enforcing the low speed or "rolling red" violations that plague Manteca. In May, Nestor studied six (6) Manteca intersections considered problematic by the local police department. The tests concluded that violations -- especially rolling right turn violations -- were dangerously high.

Nestor will further protect drivers in the 64,000 resident City of Manteca with a unique proactive crash prevention system called Collision Avoidance™. Collision Avoidance™ prevents crashes by holding the all-red signal phase when a crash is imminent, keeping innocent drivers out of harms way. "I really like the Collision Avoidance system," stated Manteca Councilman John Harris in a recent article in the Manteca Bulletin. Collision Avoidance™ is the only proven crash prevention system of its kind now installed in the U.S. in places like San Bernardino, California.

"Nestor brings top quality public safety traffic technology to support Manteca's positive growth. Our systems have the proven ability to reduce accidents and deter dangerous driving. We are ready to put our talent to work for Manteca," stated Nestor CEO Clarence A. Davis.
