In Großbritannien kann man sich per SMS auf polizeiliche Verkehrskontrollen hinweisen lassen. Das belgische Unternehmen Etri bietet einen SMS-Alert, der die aktuellen Alkoholkontrollen in der Nähe meldet.
Vincent Parisis, chief executive of Etri, admitted that some drivers were misusing the service to drink and drive, knowing that they could choose a route home with a lower risk of being caught. He, however, insisted that the company was not operating irresponsibly because they included in each of their messages the number of a local taxi company, and advised against drinking and driving.

Bin mal gespannt, wie lange es den Service noch geben wird.
