Remember when radar guns could only measure speed? Well, a new radar gun is being tested that can determine whether or not you are texting and driving.
The new radar gun detects radio frequencies emitted from cell phones. When a text message is sent, the phone emits a distinct frequency, allowing officers to see the violation on their radar guns.
And with Range-r technology, officers can figure out which area of the vehicle the text was sent from so that drivers can’t claim a passenger sent the text.
The National Safety Council report concludes that texting and driving causes 330,000 crashes annually, six times more than likely to cause an accident than drunk driving.
