Hey now, we stopped letting people drink and drive 20 years ago.

Also Agree, It's against our Co. policy to even talk while driving. Makes for a lot of pull-overs, especially when you work out of your pickup!

I ride a bike, I'm glad to see I'm untouched.

All for the better, people can't drive as it is....adding to the elements only makes things more dangerous

HARD TO ENFORCE POLAR15????????

I think not...all they have to do is pull your phone record...it shows every single call made, incoming/outgoing, and every single text message sent and received...so all the officer has to do is look at that exact date/time and it will show that you were using your phone to send/receive a text message...
***(trust me, i get my at&t cell phone bill detailed, and don't think the cops can't get a hold of your phone records if they need to prove it, date and time and minute, it's all there in black and white)
~nuff said!
