When driving late at night my mind always wonders to the question, “what if I get pulled over now, would I be safe?” Living in the rural area it’s dark and not many cars are on the roads. But what if I was able to record the entire thing without lifting a finger?
While most of the routine stops by the police are for good reasons like speeding, illegally changing lanes, or a tail light being out, sometimes motorist believe that the police aren’t treating them fairly.
Robert Petersen recently invented a shortcut for Siri. The shortcut is a voice command that makes it easy for your iPhone to record the police stop. This new shortcut is called Police, and all you have to do (after it’s installed) is to say, “Siri, I’m getting pulled over.”
“I have noticed in reading news articles and seeing reports on TV that in many cases you end up with police saying one thing happened and the citizen being pulled over saying another. And how do you determine truth? Sometimes the police have body cams, sometimes not, and even when they do it’s not always released in a timely manner,” explained Peterson.
Once you say the command, “Siri, I’m getting pulled over” your phone instantly goes into Do Not Disturb mode. It pauses your music, turns down your screen brightness is turned down.
But, the most important part of the new shortcut is your camera is turned on and in record mode. You can stop the recording when you are finished. , and it will automatically return to normal with the Do Not Disturb mode stopped, your music playing again, and your phone brightness turned back up.
“My only goal with the Police shortcut is trying to help people stay safe … and honest.” He goes on to say, “99.999 percent of the time you’ll never need it, but if you end up in a situation where it ended up being a good idea, you’ll be thankful you did.”
