LONDON April 12: A new device is launched to find out if you are using phone while driving. The new technology will be used first by Thames Valley and Hampshire police.
The device will help police to identify if a phone is being used at wheels and this will result in the police flashing a sign to ask the driver to stop using the phone.
However, the device will not be able to pick up if its the driver or the passenger who is using the phone.
This wont be used to penalise anyone or act as enforcement but will be aimed to educating on the dangers of mobile phone usage while driving.
The device will identify if its hand held or hands free too. If its hands free then it wont pick up the act.
Drivers caught using a mobile phone while driving are currently fined £200 and given six points on their licence.
