In the UK, began to use special sensors that recognize drivers who use mobile phones while driving without hands-free devices.

The complex is able to recognize 2G, 3G and 4G networks as well as a Bluetooth signal. In that case, if the system does not record the activity of the Bluetooth protocol, then it concludes that the phone is used without a wireless device. Then on a special information signs along the road, a signal appears with a crossed phone.

So far, these complexes have appeared only in one region of the country, namely in Oxfordshire. A little later, these sensors will begin to install on the roads in Hampshire and other regions. While the system is used only for preventive purposes, as the electronics have not yet learned how to determine whether the phone is being used by the driver or is in the passenger’s hands. By the way, according to British law, using a mobile phone while driving is punishable by a fine of £ 200 ($ 262,300). If the violator’s driving experience is small, he will have to retake the driving test.
