How the Cops Can Tell That You’re Illegally Yakking on Your Cell Phone

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

The first way is that you don’t notice the green light in front of you for about four seconds. This serves to attract attention to yourself.

The second way is that that the gigantic side mirrors (or “wing mirrors” but just don’t call them “side view” cause that’s not what they are) on your SUV lets the whole world see what you’re up to.

And violating our new “hands-free law” is a “primary offense,” meaning that a cop can pull you over just for that – s/he doesn’t need any other reason.

The problem with this whole situation is that, in the real world, it doesn’t matter whether your cell phone conversation is hand-free or not – it’s the cell phone conversation itself that’s the problem. This fact is helpfully pointed out by SPUR, the San Francisco Urban Planning + Research Association.

Let’s be careful out there.
