  • Watch motorway traffic jam clips on your mobile phones
    system has been launched by the Highways Agency in a bid to cut tailbacks on the badly congested motorway network Drivers can now avoid traffic jams by having pictures of busy roads sent to their mobile phones The service is expected to prove especially useful during the Christmas period at the start of school terms on football match days and concert nights in Manchester Drivers who sign up to the scheme can tell what the roads will be like before they leave the house and can plan their journeys to avoid traffic hotspots Images take three seconds to download and update every five seconds The trial starts with 100 cameras on the M25 M1 M6 M4 M5 M40 M42 M54 M60 A1M M61 and will extend to the full Highways Agency CCTV network by the end of the year and could be used on ordinary roads if it proves a hit with motorists The technology is already is use in 14 American cities including New York San Francisco and Dallas Drivers who register for the British service pay nothing for the first 14 days then 4 a month or 1 a day if they wish to continue after that The cost of transferring the information to a mobile phone is about 1p a second A Highways Agency spokeswoman said We re carrying out this 12 month trial to see if we can help our road users plan their journeys and avoid any delays on the network You ll be able to check real time traffic conditions on the busiest parts of our network from the convenience of your handset and time your journeys to cut out the worst of the traffic At this stage it s difficult to gauge how much it will cut congestion but if lots of motorists

  • Watching TV on computer or mobile phone requires a licence
    implications about watching TV on a computer or mobile phone A spokesman said If a customer currently has no licence they will need to obtain one to watch live programmes on their PC or mobile Ninety eight per cent of people in Britain have TVs and the vast majority of them have licences so the numbers we are talking about are very small But the message is that if people are relying on this new technology then you should make sure you re covered Many mobile phone networks are offering TV services while others are testing systems BT Sky and others are setting up internet TV networks where pictures are sent down a telephone line instead of an aerial Enforcing the law could be hard because of the complexity in licensing arrangements Computers are registered by the address at which they are housed Mobile phones on the other hand are covered by different licences that are dependent on their location Businesses selling TV equipment or TV enabled computer hardware have an obligation to pass on the buyer s details to the authorities But this doesn t apply to mobile phones John Delaney principal analyst with Ovum said I can t see a sustainable situation here because there are too many loopholes Campaigners are calling for tighter control on the regulation of services that allow parents to track their children via their phones In recent years parents concern about their children s safety has led to tracking services Most companies work to an industry code of practice but some activists believe serious safety breaches are inevitable without regulation Judy Mallaber Labour MP for Amber Valley said For a lot of parents it s quite reassuring but when you ve got people who groom children you really need to have better checks
