So it’s been just over a week since the new 6 points and £200 fine for using a mobile device while driving has been put into action. With this a few cameras have been put up on some of the major high streets around Newcastle, which are there to catch drivers on their phone. I know technology develops very fast but how would a camera like this work. (I have just graduated with a computer networking degree last July, and coming to think of it, it would have been interesting to look into something like this for a final year project). The only way I can see this working is by having your average CCTV cameras sending footage to a control room where officers are monitoring each car, on the off chance they detect a driver on their phone they would send the owner his/her certificate of achievement (penalty notice) via the post. This post may become a debate on whether the 6 points are justifiable, however the sole purpose of the thread is to get a little insight to the new cameras.
