    i didn't know you could be ticketed if you use it at a stoplight. i do that sometimes. but the rest of the time, if i'm on the phone, i'm using bluetooth. never actually touch the phone.

    I think it’s one of those things where they can issue a ticket, but not something every cop will do. I’ll check mine at a light every once in a while, but my kid chastises me for it!

    interesting. i was stopped by a cop a few months ago. i was surprised that he stuck his head IN MY WINDOW to look at my dashboard screen - what you are saying may explain why. nothing was displayed on the screen except for the local map and the nick cave i was streaming. HA

    I would be a bit freaked out by that CZB

    If I am stopped by the police I get out of my car so I can speak to them face-to-face.
    I even had a cop compliment me on my driving after he grilled me for what speed I was doing (the same as everyone else which was 10mph over the speed limit) but he couldn’t prove it lol so no ticket.

    You can’t get out of your car here. Unless you’re asked to do so. Cops here will shoot first and ask questions later. Kinda kidding, but they will scream at you to get back in car. Happened to my friend. She threw her purse in the trunk and got out to get it. The cop screamed at her until she cried. Hand on his gun and all that shit.

    Yeah. No guns (ok so generally the sexay-next-door-neighbour is from that specific branch of the police). It’s a psychological thing and I was told to do it by a policeman.

    It is not banned where I live but I think they are working on it still doesn't mean people will comply.

    I'd get busted for following my GPS more than texting. I have bluetooth in my car so I never hold the phone in my hand or up to my ear while driving.
