Australia: Sydney motorists using mobile phones will be snapped in camera trial

Motorists using the M4 motorway in Sydney’s west and Anzac Parade in the city’s east who illegally use mobile phones while driving will from January be identified using new high-tech camera systems.

Roads Minister Melinda Pavey announced on Sunday an Australian company had been selected to install the systems. The selection of the company, Acusensus, follows an earlier trial in October in which more than 11,000 drivers a day were detected illegally using their phone.
