New radar technology combined with artificial intelligence is set to monitor road traffic even more accurately in the future. Mobile phones at the wheel can be expensive.

Speed, distance, red lights and now also mobile phone use! Radar devices will be able to monitor more and more regulations and bans more precisely. Background: Distractions (mostly caused by mobile phones) are now the most common cause of fatal accidents in Austria. At 25.6 percent, this cause is even higher than speeding (22.7 percent).

Law enforcement agencies now want to counter this development with high-tech. In the future, artificial intelligence will turn “normal” radar devices into “super AI radar devices.” These will be fed with thousands and thousands of images of mobile phone users and automatically recognize when someone is using a mobile phone. Tablet users or drivers fiddling with their SatNav are also caught.

The images are then sent to a control center. There, people check to see whether an offense has actually been committed.

The first pilot project is in the Netherlands. Mobile phone offenders there currently pay a fine of around 240 euros. The system has also already been tested on roads in Germany. It will soon be used throughout Europe.

Mobile distance radar devices are already causing a stir, particularly on Facebook. People are posting warnings about the speed cameras in their own groups and letting off a lot of steam.
