Police using buses to catch distracted drivers Watch
I wouldn't class it as a minor motoring offence and neither do the police . Many people have been killed as a result of people using their mobile phones . It's also 6 points on your licence and rightly so . The police should do it a lot more and save even more lives .
I just dont think that law enforcement should be allowed to essentially engage in mass surveillance with no warrant and no oversight and no indication to the public that it is happening. Its not just about what works, it is about assessing whether living in a country where at any point in time you might be being filmed by the government (in addition to all the other shady surveillance methods we are subjected to) is something we think is acceptable.
