Police detectors to warn mobile phone-using drivers | BBC News

Mobile phone detectors are to be used by police to find drivers using devices at the wheel.
The Thames Valley and Hampshire forces are rolling out the technology to show when motorists are using their phones.
A sign will flash at the driver telling them to stop using their mobile - but the detectors cannot tell if it is a driver or passenger using the phone.
I'm betting that they also can't tell if you're using Waze, or some other navigation app, with the phone safely on your dash.

Silent 999 calls: Campaign to debunk myths - BBC News


A reminder to UK people:
A campaign aims to raise awareness of a method of alerting police if you are in imminent danger but need to keep quiet.
The Silent Solution system, which prompts 999 callers to press 55 on mobiles to signify they are unable to talk, has been in operation since 2002.
But the instruction is only detected in about 50 of 5,000 calls a day pushed through the automated system.

The Palestinian checkpoint experience

Every day, over 80,000 Palestinians cross into Israel. Eighty-five percent of them are men who work in Israel. The rest come for medical, educational or other purposes.

But still I had questions: Are the crossings really mere security barriers, similar to airports where those with nefarious intentions are caught? Or, as some claim, are they places where Israeli soldiers humiliate the population whose movements they restrict?

I started photographing the people tentatively, afraid they would be hostile — or worse. I imagined them seeing me as the enemy. Perhaps they did. But once I became comfortable, I found the reactions to my presence ranging from none to mild interest, and even to smiles and posing. I felt no hostility aside from what I projected from my imagination.

These photos humanize the Palestinians in a way that Israelis don’t often see and force us to see a glimpse of the endless waiting that is their plight. There are few experiences more frustrating, a

Upgrade your car's emergency preparedness with these 5 products


The first three are fairly well known but the last two are more interesting:

* PanicSafe Emergency Locator & Car Charger - stays in the charger outlet which is useful if your car rolls or otherwise tosses everyone around in an accident as chances are this stays in the outlet plug. Triggered by G-Force or pushing its panic button, it will notify up to 7 of your contacts.

* Ztylus Stinger Car Charger Emergency Tool - also fits in the charge outlet but will act as a window breaker and seat belt cutter (OK I have one of these on my car keys but seeing my car is a keyless start, my keys stay in my pocket.

If you’re driving when an earthquake strikes, you should pull to the side of the road, advises the U.S. government. If you’re indoors, it suggests, stay away from door frames. But what if the earthquake is strong enough to reduce the building you’re currently in to a pile of rubble?
