Dozens of new, supposedly vandal-proof speed cameras in France have been put out of use by supporters of the country's “yellow vest” revolt.

Almost three quarters of France's existing speed cameras have been trashed recently, so the French government took the opportunity to replace them with what they say are more efficient devices.

News: Iran Accused of GPS Jamming in Strait of Hormuz

pocketgpsworld.com
Amidst ongoing tensions in the Strait of Hormuz, vessels have now been warned that GPS interference and other communications jamming may be encountered.

Two incidents so far have reported GPS jamming. The US believe Iran is the source using jamming hardware located on the island of Abu Musa, at the eastern entrance to the strait.

An American official said that Iran is attempting to trick vessels into straying into Iranian controlled waters where they would then be seized.

The US Maritime Administration (MARAD) has now issued a formal warning to shipping and advising masters to ensure their AIS (Automatic Identification System) is transmitting, submit detailed transit planes before entering the area as well as advise on what to do if Iranian forces attempt to board.

News: High Court Clarifies Law on Using Phone Whilst Driving

pocketgpsworld.com
On 31 July the High Court handed down a judgment which clarifies the law on the offence of using a mobile phone whilst driving.

The judgment states that it must be proved beyond reasonable doubt that the phone was being used for an 'interactive telecommunication function' at the time of the alleged offence.

Previously any interaction with your phone whilst driving was deemed an offence and the law has been slow to catch up to the numerous other purposes for which we use smartphones these days. Now there is a clear distinction between using the features of a smartphone such as navigation and music and the telephony features.

There is still the catch-all legislation of driving without due care, so this this is not a green light to drive one handed whilst holding your phone in the other and looking at a map. A good car mount should still be considered an essential but it does at least now mean we can use the SatNav and music functions and interact with them without fear of a fine so long as common sense is applied.
