Have you been caught by a mobile phone detection camera?
Mobile phone detection cameras are well and truly underway in NSW with the initiative raking in millions of dollars’ worth of fines. The roll out of mobile phone detection cameras are part of the NSW Government’s strategy to reduce road fatalities and injuries with an aim for the toll to be 0 by 2056.
The cameras work by using infrared technology and AI to determine if the camera has captured a mobile phone. The image is then analysed by professionals to determine if the photo shows the driver illegally using a mobile phone. If the image is proven to show the driver illegally using a mobile phone, they will be fined and should receive their penalty notice within a week of the offence.
The better option is to pull over in a safe place if you need to use your mobile phone. Otherwise, the next best thing is to use handsfree options, such as a cradle or Bluetooth linked to your car.
