Time to experiment with polarized films on the windshield or IR lighting. Other ideas anyone?

I seen this on the news the other day as well.

I wonder how they think it’ll work in Alberta where there are no fronts plates?

I’m just going by the statement of it using a wide angle photo to identify offenders.

Alberta has the best license plate system!
No uglies on the front.

I can already hear some bureaucrat using the "public safety" argument to persuade the government to require front plates so that this tech can be used in Alberta.
George Orwell's 1984 anyone?

A film much like that used for anti-photo plate covers that allows a person to see through the windshield from a horizontal position but not from an acute angle would do the trick. Until it's made illegal of course.

We use to have them. 1991 was the last year Alberta required front and rear plates.

They will pair up front facing with rear facing cameras; motion picture with overlapping imagery.

I actually don’t care if someone is texting or talking on the phone while driving as long as they are control and alert


I have 0 problems with ppl reading short messages and quick replies. I have no problem with ppl on their phones at red lights. I’m fine with honking to get a person moving if they don’t see the light go green


To that type of texting is no different than a person lighting up a cigarette or grabbing an apple or water out of a bag

Government and insurance statistics say otherwise.
Texting and driving is the new great driving hazard. Taking lives and injuries on the level of impaired drivers.
It's the reason so many new laws regarding distracted driving are in place around the world.
I prefer drivers drive. Especially when I'm on the motorcycle.

I’m telling u right now motorcyclists are the biggest hypocrites when it comes distracted driving. They bitch and complain about but I gaurantee 98% of them do “distracted driving”.

I look at my phone when I’m at stop at red lights and I read 1 line text messages while i drive. I dont see how this any different than when I turn my head briefly to look out the side windows while in motion or stopped.
