Australia’s most populous state, South Wales, on Sunday rolled out “high definition detection cameras” that can detect a driver using a mobile phone.

Andrew Constance, New South Wales’ Minister for Roads said the “world-first” technology would target illegal cell phone use through “fixed and mobile trailer-mounted cameras.”

According to Transport for NSW 45 cameras, using artificial intelligence to review images and detect illegal use of cell phones, will be installed across the state over the next three years, and will operate round the clock and in all weather conditions.

For the first three months, drivers caught out by the technology will receive a warning letter, Transport for New South Wales said in a statement, after which offenders will face a fine of up to $344, or $457 in a school zone, and penalty points on their drivers license.

“The NSW Government is serious about reducing our state’s road toll and rolling out mobile phone detection cameras is another way we will do this,” Constance said in a statement.
Officials said that a trial of the technology earlier in the year had caught more than 100,000 drivers illegally using a phone at the wheel.

Some 329 people have died this year on New South Wales’ roads, Reuters news agency reports. NSW officials hope to cut the number of road fatalities by 30% by 2021, the report said.
