Chirp alerts cell-gabbing driver of intersection
MyMobileAlert tracks the cellphone via GPS as its owner drives about their business. When the system determines the chatty driver is approaching within one hundred feet of a stoplight or a certain distance from an intersection, the cellphone will emit a loud 'chirp' to notify the driver who can then take any appropriate actions.
The only requirement for MyMobileAlert is a GPS-capable cellphone; the issuing wireless company would install the necessary software. So far the system has been demonstrated in cities such as West Hollywood, California.
