Acusensus is proud to announce that it is partnering with the NSW Government to address the significant challenge of distracted driving. NSW has a pioneering initiative to improve road safety through the introduction of illegal mobile phone use enforcement cameras.
Managing Director Alexander Jannink said:
Acusensus is very pleased to have been selected to partner with the government for this pioneering road safety project. Mobile phone use by drivers is very prevalent and very dangerous. Drivers using a mobile phone have a dramatically raised crash risk, and we know from our system tests that right now 3% of drivers will be illegally using a phone. The Acusensus safety camera solution detects any motorist using a mobile phone illegally, day or night, at any speed and it can be deployed anywhere on the road network, both metro and rural. The quality of the evidence and the high detection performance ensures that anybody who does text and drive will be caught and can be prosecuted. This new technology provides the government with an effective tool to enforce illegal phone use and drive behavioural change to reduce the prevalence of distracted driving. This behavioural change will lead to less crashes and safer roads for all of us.
