The UK has introduced road signs that electronically detect if a driver is using a mobile phone behind the wheel. The signs will flash an image of a mobile with a line through it to remind drivers not to use their phones while driving.

Driving a truck is one of the most amazing (and essential) jobs in the world. It’s the kind of job that no-one wants, but everyone wants. On one hand, we’re out on the open road without the constraints of 9-5 working hours. But that also means long periods of driving alone and a fairly sedentary lifestyle.
