Let’s get it out of the way—texting and driving is bad.
So bad, in fact, that a new startup is encouraging those on the road around you to pick up their phones, assuming they’re a passenger, and submit a short video clip of your wrongdoings to it for cash.
Text to Ticket is a newer startup based out of San Francisco, California. It was formed when a group of friends were crossing the street and were nearly hit by a car who was distracted by their phone and nearly ended their life.
