Sonar device keeps cars at a safe distance from cyclists
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
The three-foot rule, which is in place in 26 states across the US, requires cars to keep a safe distance between themselves and cyclists. If they fail to do so they can be issued with a ticket, which can lead to points on their license or monetary fines. But although there are a substantial number of cases — 500 in Florida last year — very few drivers are ever found guilty, because it has been difficult for police to judge and prove distances. Now, C3FT is a sonar device that can be attached to a police biker’s handlebars, and provide technological proof of drivers infringing the three-foot zone.
