Students develop solution to reckless driving

SHARJAH: Free rides for drivers, who try to escape road fines by slowing down near the speed radar or fasten seatbelts only when they find a police patrolling car in the vicinity, may soon be a thing of the past if an innovative project prepared by students of the Skyline University, Sharjah, becomes a reality.

Aptly called Smart Street, the project suggests the roads and transport authorities to equip every vehicle with a small cellphone-sized sensor that can get connected to radars through electro-magnetic waves. The sensor can also be connected to the vehicle’s computer with a small screen to show commands to the driver if he is driving above or below the speed limit or has not buckled up. If the driver continues to drive recklessly despite warning, he maybe fined by the authorities.
