Everyone knows that texting while driving is illegal, right? Nonetheless, there are still plenty of drivers on the road today who risk it all to send a text that says “lol”. This dangerous behavior still persists because cops cannot always see drivers who are texting. That’s why law officials are taking a new, hi-tech approach to end texting and driving.
A new type of radar gun can now detect when a driver is texting. You might be asking yourself, how a radar can pick up on this sort of thing? If a cell phone is being utilized in any capacity, the radio frequencies it gives off can be spotted. ComSonics has made this ground breaking technology available.
The product is still in the early stages of development and would need a proper trial run before law enforcement officials could use it. Texting and driving is a prevalent and fully preventable problem in today’s society. The creation of this device is definitely a step in the right direction.
