CCTV smart cars take to the streets


New CCTV cars that could capture drivers on film using mobile phones or eating at the wheel are being used in a road safety pilot by Greater Manchester Police.

The small smart cars have a 12 foot mast with a camera attached to them to film the behaviour of drivers.

Anyone whose behaviour is considered distracting could face a fine and points on their licence.

Rajini Vaidyanathan reports.
