New Camera Technology Can Detect Drivers On Their Phones

A new camera technology can detect drivers on their phone.

A dual camera safety technology about to be introduced in Australia will be able to detect drivers on their cellphones while out on the road. The goal is to not only capture the driver using his or her phone, but also photograph the license plate in order to send the driver at fault a hefty fine.

Using a cellphone while driving is passable of a 344 Australian dollars fine which equals roughly $300 in Canada or $230 in the US.

The cameras will be permanently located on the side of major roadways as well as portable transport systems in order to move around and cover various hot spots.

The cameras went through a six-month trial period and captured over 100,000 cellphone users. On one occasion, a driver was photographed using his phone while his passenger held the steering wheel.
