New South Wales (NSW), a state in Australia has said that these new cameras use artificial intelligence to determine whether some is or isn't using their phone while operating a moving vehicle. The system will flag a driver if they are suspected as using a phone, and then the images will be reviewed by a human before fines are issued out. NSW police assistant commissioner, Michael Corboy, told Australian media that "It's a system to change the culture."

At the moment, the plans for these cameras include forty-five of them to roll out across the state over the next three years. The Australian law is giving drivers a small grace period, as for the first three months if a driver is caught by one of these cameras they will be issued an official warning -- after the three months fines of $344 AUD ($233 US) will be sent out as well as penalty points. The NSW government has said that having these cameras on the roads could prevent 100 fatal crashes across a five year period.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
