The UK is introducing high-tech road signs to crack down on phone use while driving.
It can not tell the difference between a driver and a passenger using a phone.
The technology can't record auto registration numbers or issue fines, but the data it does collect will be shared with police to set up potential future crackdowns.
Norfolk County Council's road safety team have worked with speed and warning sign specialists Westcotec on deploying the next-level signs, which are a first for United Kingdom roads.

Those caught using their mobile phones at the wheel by the police face a £200 fine and six points on their licence, following the introduction of tougher laws past year.
"This device is purely about education, warning drivers and being able to identify when the driver was on the phone", the company says.

When the relevant signal is detected indicating that a mobile phone is being used within the vehicle, the road sign is activated as the vehicle passes, giving a specific flashing visual message that will prompt a driver to stop using their phone.
Using a mobile phone at the wheel now carries a punishment of six penalty points and a £200 fine, which was increased from three penalty points and a £100 fine a year ago.
The warning sign shows an illuminated mobile phone icon within a bright red circle and diagonal red line.
