Malaysia Lets Drivers With Camera Phones Turn In Bad Drivers
from the take-that dept
Talk about taking the law into your own hands. Over in Malaysia, apparently the government is encouraging drivers to snap photos of bad drivers and then upload them to a website where traffic officials decide whether or not to assess a fine. The Raw Feed accurately notes that, apparently, traffic officials are much less concerned about drivers snapping photos while they should be paying attention to the road. Apparently the website is a big hit in Malaysia. It's funny, people seem to get quite upset by automated roadside/traffic cameras -- but when it comes to other motorists turning people in, it's less of a concern.
