Cell phone tickets are unconstitutional, a violation of personal space, and this is morally tantamount to punishing people using horseless buggies.

The fact that police can pull over tax paying citizens in 2012 for talking on their phone is a complete violations of personal space, violates personal rights, and is a sad example of how the police and government have abilities to violate citizens at any moment in the day. Maybe it's not the polices fault, but the fact they choose to enforce this petty law over focusing energies on real malignant crimes shows how backwards their priories are, and it's a sad day.

The fact the law makers expect 350 million Americans to run out and purchase wear-in ear widgets so they can talk "hands free" on their phones is an unfair and unrealistic expectation, and most people don't have the money, time, or tech savvy to do this.

Wake up fellow citizens, on top of surrendering 30% of your pay checks to go towards the military war complex, and a list of government bailouts, you will now have to pay $180 for talking on your phone in your private vehicle. To top off the fact you are also getting ripped off from the telecommunications monopoly charging you for data.

Fight back and tell the cops this is an unwarranted form of taxation and manipulation, and needs to be stopped.

would you say the same thing about someone who ran over your family member or child because they were distracted on their phone?
