Its become a way of life these days that people seem to be compelled to answer a cell phone call, a text or a tweet as soon as they receive it, even if they are driving a vehicle at the time. This dangerous practice continues to happen every day even when new laws have been introduced, fines and driver training courses highlighting the issues. Drivers not only put themselves at risk but their passengers i.e children or passing pedestrians or oncoming drivers.
How can this driver behaviour be changed. Drivers will continue using cells unless they get caught and their jobs are at risk. Onboard cameras capture the act, now Transportation Directors and Fleet owners have the evidence that shows the driver in the act and as a result take the appropriate action.
