today i learned – fri 1st feb 2019

remember those lorries that the police purchased to catch texting drivers? 🤔 well, they’ve a new toy!

#tdil one police force is now using a double decker to find people who text and drive! 🚌

now, using your phone whilst driving is really bad … like, i know everyone bangs that drum, but it’s true! problem is, it’s quite hard for the po po to catch people in the act 😕

you may have seen that some police forces started using unmarked lorries on the motorway to find peeps; it basically just gives them a better view point to see into people’s cars 👍🏻

using that inspo, west midlands police are now using a double decker bus 😏 unlike the lorries, however, ‘operation top deck’ just sees plain clothes officers take to standard public transport 😎

perched upon the top deck, the officers use cameras to catch people that are using their phones whilst driving 🙌🏻

it works 😁 on day one, the officers caught a lady eating cereal whilst driving! she was eventually convicted 👍🏻

stay safe peeps! 😘

lates 😉 #tdil
