Radar Guns to Catch Texting Drivers?more information ››
We’re all familiar with the radar guns that police use to catch and ticket speeding drivers. Radar guns to detect drivers who text behind the wheel can't be too far away. If law enforcement begins using the guns, they'll surely start issuing lots of "texting tickets." The best advice would be to keep your eyes on the road, slow down, and put your phone away. Pay attention to your driving as if your life depended on it… because it does.
