I keep seeing drivers talking on their handheld cellphones while driving. And they’re usually not paying attention to the road, either.
In my neck of the woods, it’s been illegal to do that, for a few years by now. I truly don’t believe anybody can plead ignorance anymore, at this late late stage. The posters are everywhere, in several languages, and have been for some time
My questions are as follows . . .
Have you gotten busted?
What state was it in?
How much was the ticket?
Did it discourage and/or stop you from doing it again?
Did anybody get busted a second time . . . I’m asking because I hear the second offense is more expensive
By the way, I freely admit that I did use handheld cellphones while driving . . . before the ban
I still do other things, so I’m no saint, either
I’m not talking about texting while driving . . . that’s an entirely different situation, which probably deserves its own discussion
