Never mind the fact that having a conversation on a cellphone is actually near the BOTTOM of the lists of distracted driving accidents, but for police departments to have the gall to claim "we're exempt" from the assinine cellphone laws is simply outrageous, it breeds dissent among the public, and reinforces the opinion of myself and others to simply ignore unjust laws. Go ahead, try to reach into my wallet for talking on a phone, I'll school you on the right to drive and right to non-interference inside my private property. Yes, you brainwashed ecofreaks, it IS and always has been a right to drive on public highways, a freedom which is protected under the common law right to travel. It's not just a mere "privilege", which is another great load of shit force-fed to kids these days by the authorities. Do your research.
Common law rights to travel overrule motor vehicle act regulations, and common SENSE overrules douchebags who would actually ticket people for multitasking safely. Texting and driving, yes I agree....that takes eyes away from where they should be, so get them off the road using existing laws we've had for years. But having a conversation while driving? No different than talking to passengers in your car. And at least if someone's pissing you off on the phone and distracting you, you can just HANG UP. Not with passengers! Why don't they ban extra seats in cars? Why don't they ban drive-through windows? Eating food is at the top of the list causing accidents. True fucking story.
There has always been distracted driving laws which can be enforced, for example if you're swerving in traffic for any reason, you can be charged for distracted driving. The only thing the new cellphone laws accomplish is extorting money from anyone holding a phone, regardless of whether they're driving just fine. Go ahead, make yourself believe it's for your safety if you must, but reality is it's about money. Money money cash moola.
The real question is: why the fuck would you be behind the wheel if you can't do two things at once? How did you get a license??? Changing CD's, doing makeup in the car, and sipping on hot coffee while making a left hand turn are FAR more likely to cause an accident. That's a statistical fact. Illegal? Nope.
Ludicrous laws do not deserve respect and neither do those in uniforms who would enforce them on a citizen. ESPECIALLY when they violate the same law daily. I'm beyond sick and tired of the nanny state, and had enough of big government invading every aspect of my life while being hypocrites themselves. Have a great day!
