Cars that block the mobile signal in response to the increase in the accident rate


Cars that block the mobile signal in response to the increase in the accident rate
The car accidents have been part of our society for several years, but this has increased with the advent of smartphones. In the United States during 2014 they showed 35,000 accidents, which led to the death of 3,129 people, while in 2015 the figure rose to 45,000 accidents with 39,000 people injured.

The figures are similar in other regions of the world and even more worrying. This has led to the release of hundreds of campaigns seeking to raise awareness about the dangers of using mobile while driving, but apparently have not been enough, since in Britain want to take a step further by incorporating signal jammers in Cars.

A drastic way to stop accidents

The Department of Transport UK (DfT) is proposing an idea in response to the increase in accidents related to the use of smartphones at the wheel. In the project there is talk of two measures: one blocker signal or add a mode "safe driving" to phones, similar to "airplane mode".

The software aims to implement the cars is somewhat similar to what is present in some prisons, a blocker that would disable the data signals and the telephone network. Something that in the first instance does not sound very practical, since the blockade could affect people close to the car and not just the driver. But this is hardly a proposal and we must thoroughly review the details and possible consequences.

This emerges as a measure derived from an activist movement that seeks to reduce this type of accidents and increase the penalties for the use of mobile in cars. Data flinging movement is that one in three motorists admitted to using their smartphone while driving, which led 17,500 people in courts in 2016. But more serious is that a fifth of motorists said they believed it was safe review Social networks and send text messages while they were sitting in traffic.

During 2017 ministers will meet with car manufacturers and mobile companies, this with the aim is to reach a consensus to solve these problems. In addition to this, in 2017 fines for these actions will increase by up to 200 pounds and six penalty points, provided that the accident does not result in death, as in this case would face life imprisonment.
