Radar Guns For Texting And Driving
Across the nation, local law enforcement has been doing everything in their power to eliminate distracted driving all together. In today’s connected society, this has proven itself to be a challenge amongst drivers of all ages.
Texting, the most common distraction to drivers, has lead officials in the state of New York to implement the use of “text stops” throughout the state. Roadways throughout the Empire State are now marked with areas that drivers can pull over and safely send a text message. Signs are posted along highways that read “Texting Zone, It Can Wait” and how far a driver is from a safe texting destination. It’s only a matter of time before other states follow in New York’s footsteps. Texting and driving has developed into a major issue, and law enforcements are finally doing something about it.
Specialty radar guns are currently being developed to monitor more dangerous activity than speeding: texting while driving. In an effort to combat the habit of texting and driving, a Virginia-based company is in the process of developing radar guns that are capable of detecting text messaging frequencies from passing cars on the roads. Virginia is one of the 44 states that have banned texting while driving. With the development of this radar gun, law enforcement is well on their way to ending the damages that texting and driving cause.
