December, the world’s first cell phone detection cameras were rolled out in
Australia. The goal: To catch drivers using their cell phones while driving. If
the same technology were in place in the United States – and, let’s face it,
that probably isn’t far away – how guilty would you be of distracted driving?
If you knew Big Brother was watching you, would that be enough to get you to

of distracted driving car accidents
The Mission to Change Distracted Driving
South Wales in Australia, fixed and mobile trailer-mounted cameras are being
used to target illegal cell phone use. A combination of artificial intelligence
and authorized personnel are being used to review images and detect the use of
cell phones behind the wheel. The portable cameras will be deployed over the
next three years in unknown locations and without warning signs.
caught by the technology will receive a warning letter, then a hefty fine (especially

the wheel; and cognitive distraction, when your mind is not on driving. Any of
these distractions can lead to a car crash and horrific consequences.
those who insist that their distractions are barely a blip in the grand scheme
of things, know this: If you’re traveling at 55 miles per hour, sending or
reading a text takes your eyes off the road for about five seconds, which is
