Imagine getting a text that has a speeding ticket attached. This is something that has been happening for almost two years. A police department in the San Antonio area (WINDCREST)  was one of the first areas in the nation to try out this new program. Trusted Driver is a web-based program where drivers can avoid seeing a police officer face-to-face, and instead get a ticket via text message. The reason the program is being rolled out is brilliant.

 According to the President & CEO of the Trusted Driver Program, Val Garcia "If we minimize those interactions just for minor traffic violations, they have more time to dedicate to serious crime like DWIs that are on the road, reckless drivers, racing," as reported by KENS-TV   If this program was to come to our area, would you register? Would you take the time to register on your phone?

THEY CAN ALSO SEND YOU POSITIVE MESSAGES:

Through Trusted Driver, police are also able to send positive messages to drivers who are doing a stellar job obeying traffic laws. The program launched a couple of years ago  in Windcrest.  A rollout could be Nationwide soon.
