In order to combat growing concerns about drivers who text, an app accepts videos of offenses and sends them to local authorities

A group of entrepreneurs formed a partnersnhip to combat texting while driving by creating an app called Text To Ticket.

If a user witnesses another driver using their phone behind the wheel, they can take a video using the app. The program processes the video, giving it a geotag to clearly indicate where and when the video was taken. When capturing an offense, a user must visually show a driver using their phone and the vehicle’s license plate. Text To Ticket sends the finished video to local law enforcement, which handles the legal portion. A user receives five dollars if they send in a video and have it approved. Of course, only passengers of a vehicle can use the application—not other drivers.

Text To Ticket was launched in March for iOS and Android.
