With the arrival of the new year comes new laws, but one new law related to teenage driving safety created quite a controversy among newly licensed teens in 2012. What this new driving law stated was that teenage motorists under the age of 18 caught driving in excess of 15mph over the speed limit would be arrested! Although the law was intended to be a proactive step in reducing the statistically frightening number of deaths associated with teenage driving, it has not sat well with those targeted by the law that has now been in place approximately for one year.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol are well aware of the powerful and vivid statistics that validate the real dangers associated with teenage driving. Numbers that show the top cause of premature death among teens is automotive related accidents. However, some North Carolina teens and even adults have stated they believe an arrest for what is essentially a misdemeanor traffic offense is not the appropriate way to address the issue of teenage driving safety. The opponents of the law state that it's unfair because the law that targets only a specific group of people is actually discrimination. They ask why adults over 18 can drive 15mph over the speeding limit and not get arrested even though the driver responsibility is the same?
Parents agree that measures should be taken to promote, encourage and reward safe driving practices in an effort to reduce the teenage driving statistics, but many believe that this law is simply overkill. This is why some parents have invested in GPS teen tracking systems to monitor driving behaviors of teen motorists. With these tracker device systems, parents can easily determine if their teen is driving a car at dangerous unsafe speeds. GPS tracking systems are one of the newest avenues parents are choosing to learn more about how
Although the majority of North Carolina teens impacted by the driving law don't agree with it they do understand why such legislation was drafted. One teen interviewed about the law explained it is important that teen drivers be aware of their driving behaviors. She said anything that could possibly make a teenage driver think twice about their driving habits is a positive thing, but adults should also be held to the same type of driving standards
Do you agree with the North Carolina legislation that is harsher toward drivers under the age of 18 that are caught speeding?

Felix Buamgartner captivated the world when the Austrian daredevil did something no human had ever done before: jump from a capsule 24 miles above the ground and parachute safely to the earth. What Buamgartner did was so incredible and truly death-defying that it is no wonder almost 33 million people have viewed the official YouTube video of the stunt thus far. As Buamgartner was in free fall zooming toward the earth his GPS tracking equipment initially registered his max speed at 834 miles per hour. However, after reevaluation of the speed it was determined Buamgartner actually reached an incredible velocity of 843 miles per hour.
Red Bull Stratos, the team assembled to assist Buamgartner throughout the jump, provided the 843 miles per hour number last month to the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) and its overseas counterpart the Federation Aeronautique Internationale. Buamgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team understood prior to the jump that his free fall to the Earth would likely shatter records and that is why they took multiple measures to calculate and measure his maximum falling speed. In order to be precise as possible, Buamgartner was equipped with four different GPS trackers that were all tested during practice jumps to ensure accuracy. However, these practice runs would not be the same as the real jump because of the additional variables from jumping at stratosphere heights. Variables such as rapid descending speed, possible tumbling and disruption from sonic shock waves due to travel at Mach levels of speed.
After months of careful review and examination the team was able to determine that all the tracker devices performed accurately and without abnormality. Even when Buamgartner crossed the sonic barrier.
The Buamgartner jump gained news attention all over the globe and of course shattered numerous records. But the caveat is that information obtained from the jump will also be instrumental in future development of spacesuits and other safety equipment and devices used by astronauts. This is something that Buamgartner stated was a great honor.Last Updated on Friday, 05 July 2013 01:54
Initally designed to keep American soldiers out of harm's way and gain intelligence, drones allowed the military to move into highly hostile territories without putting actual boots on the ground. These terrorist hunting and data gathering machines were going to keep Americans safe while getting the bad guys... well at least in theory. It was not long before U.S. drones were linked to the mass killings of civilians and school children all throughout Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. They became a hot topic of controversy over their use overseas, but that controversy is only going to get even more heated now that more and more drones are flying over American skies and monitoring U.S. citizens.
Fact: Domestic drones routinely fly in US Airspace. According to some estimates, approximately 3,000 drones now fly over national airspace all throughout the country with regularity. With information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) was able find documentation of lawsuits against the FAA from a variety agencies of law authority, universities and a vast number of government branches of military, suggesting that steps are being made to change the legal landscape on government spying. Other records also show the military is now putting a number of different drone models (Raven, Puma, Wasp) through different testing measures, reinforcing the notion that the government has every intention to conduct civilian monitoring through drones.
The one drone in particular that frightens many people concerned about government invasion of privacy is a all environment machine called the Puma that can essentially touchdown in any type of environment, including urban street or water. The Puma could land on any street in America and dispense massive amounts of force all while being controlled from a remote location. Other drones, like the ones seen flying over the skies of Virginia Beach, have sophisticated camera systems capable of monitoring a target for long durations of time gathering massive amounts of video activity.
"The laws pertaining to video, cellular and Internet activity have not been updated since the 1980s and therefore Americans are having their 4th Amendment rights violated on a daily basis by an over-reaching government determined to monitor private citizens", explained a unnamed person discussing the topic. "What we basically have is a tyranny problem disguised as a security problem and nothing appears to be changing in the near-term because politicians seem to have turned a blind eye on cell phone tracking, Internet monitoring, GPS tracking and other methods and tools used to invade the privacy and rights of law-abiding citizens."
Drones will only continue to become more sophisticated and capable of capturing more data through high-tech methods such as the Gorgon Stare, and that is why it is crucial that people push their lawmakers to draft legislation to strengthen personal privacy in a fast-growing digital era.Last Updated on Friday, 05 July 2013 01:54
Police departments all across the United Stated are very familiar with the benefits of using GPS monitoring systems to conduct investigations upon criminal suspects, but only a handful of these departments also utilize GPS for fleet tracking of police cruisers. Whether it be political or simple budgetary reasons, many police departments do not have a GPS vehicle management plan that allows superior officers to oversee total police fleet activity. However, Nicoma Park in the state of Oklahoma wants to change that by equipping the same tracker devices used in Oklahoma City Police Department squad cars in the police cruisers in their small town.
Nicoma Park police began seriously discussing investment in GPS monitoring systems after an incident occurred where a Choctaw police cruiser was stolen and taken for a joyride by a man named Josh Colley. Although Colley was eventually apprehended, investigators stated their growing concern over criminals targeting police cruisers to steal weaponry and other police electronic equipment. In fact, one retired police officer was on record stating that he has actually seen a rise in police vehicle theft and worries that this type of automotive theft will only continue to grow unless police begin seriously looking at GPS tracking systems as a auto-security and vehicle management solution.
Advocates for tracker systems in police cruisers explain that the devices will not only improve officer safety, but also reduce routing inefficiencies and better detail vehicle maintenance documentation. In the long term, many believe that the increase in vehicle maintenance and officer productivity will actually save the department money. However, the upfront cost for the GPS monitoring hardware and monthly service obligations do present a number of challenges for small towns such as Nicoma Park.
According to one news source, Nicoma Park would have to fork out roughly $25,000 for GPS vehicle tracking hardware and professional installation, and this would only meet the needs of six police cruisers an doesn't include monthly data fees!
GPS distributor Tracking System Direct explained it could meet the needs of Nicoma Park at a fraction of the cost (under $2,500) provided by the original estimator, and believes that the city is likely inflating cost for pork spending.

Mobile devices created by Samsung, Nokia, Google and Apple have bursted onto the consumer market and changed the way people interact with one another. Mobile devices are no longer only used for receiving/placing phone calls, and instead are now the primary method many people send emails, surf the web, draft notes, play games and social network. One thing that all cellular phones have in common is an embedded GPS tracking system. This GPS can be used for a variety of purposes and is essential to the function of numerous mobile apps. Mobile apps that provide a wide variety of benefits to their users.
Yelp, MySpace, Google Maps, Twitter, Instagram and almost every other popular mobile app accesses and utilizes Global Positioning System data from the user of the smart phone. This GPS data can be beneficial on a number of different levels. For example, through the use of GPS cell tracking smart phone users can use Yelp to check-in at local restaurants to get discounts, Facebook to share locational info, Instagram to geo-tag a camera phone image and of course let's not forget Google Maps for the most accurate navigation and routing data. None of these would be possible without the assistance of GPS technology.
GPS is critical to the function of many mobile apps, but another one of the benefits of the satellite tracking technology is in emergency situations. Depending on the wireless carrier providing service, emergency personnel (911) can often times locate where a person is at within 3,300 meters by using cellular triangulation. Having this ability can be life-saving, especially when a person is in a emergency situation and is in a unfamiliar location. The GPS tracking data from the user's cell phone results in quicker and more accurate response times and that can literally make the difference between life and death.
Almost everyone in the United States has used a smart phone and it is estimated that over 90% of Americans own a cell phone. These mobile communication devices are now critical in both the business and consumer world. However, it is the advancement of mobile technologies and GPS that is providing benefits to all smart phone users.
