You realize inputting an address on a navi system requires slightly more attention and time (more distracting) that turning a knob or holding down 1 button right?

Hmm, I wonder how they know this.

Anyways, is it illegal to look at the shifter/cupholder/handbrake/your lap/your crotch?

If so, and you get pulled over and ticketed, are you instantly guilty if the cop shows up at your dispute?

The only stories I heard, where people get caught is when they set up a safety check or when an officer on a motorcycle catches you. Otherwise, it's pretty hard to tell if you're actually on your cellphone unless you're holding up your phone where it's visible and texting.

Buddy got pulled over a couple years ago cause he had his hand resting on the door/window and his hand on the side of his head just resting his chin/face on his hand

Argued that he wasn't on the phone even though looked like he was and the cop let him off, dunno if you'd get off like that these days. I'd be fucking choked if it came to that

not sure if true but I heard that cops have to be able to give a good detail of the phone use (ie. what the person was doing, what kind of phone, approximate duration of phone use, what they were doing on the phone when the officer determined they were in violation)

which means unless you get caught by a motorcycle cop pulling up next to you while driving, or at a red light, it's pretty damn hard to get nailed while driving.

lol i drive like that all the time and i've seen a cop look at me intensely when they drive beside me or when i'm stopped at a light. Have yet to be pulled over for it though.

Yep the cop will just stand there with a blank stare as you peel out and leave him in a cloud of smoke.

Fucking $3000 scope with another thousand bucks worth of camera gear.

This reminds me of when the Richmond RCMP bought an escalade with dubs to combat street racing.

What does that super-ultra-mega zoom lens run? The one dubbed the "creep lens" or whatever.

Srsly tho, top of the line vortex is upwards of $2800 before tax. You need top of the line if the law depends on it. Add in the camera and attachments, and we have a lot more than a $3k investment. Maybe even closer to $5k after tax.

https://www.vortexcanada.net/product...-60x85-angled/

That's still only about 10 tickets to pay off the cost of the scope. Another five tickets to cover the officers wage for the day. It's a good investment.

It's a viper not a razor. You can see the green end of the barrel sticking out of the cover.

lol I hope you fucks will really like it seriously. Not sure if anyone listened to the news 1130 but the police who was being interviewed about their new toy can't seem to wait to ticket the fuck out of you. And as I have noted before, it's going to expand way beyond using electronics because "speaking to passenger" (exact quote from officer's mouth) was mentioned as qualifying for distracted driving. You can bet there will be more coming. There are just too many ways to identify a driver as being distracted.

Just wait until next time an officer uses their new toy to snaps a photo of you with your eyes not looking straight. Make sure you smile at the officer when he comes to you to hand you the $500 ticket because you were so fucking proud to support it.

Lol you are such a fucking spazz.
I have NEVER been given a ticket for something I didn't do. I bet you haven't either.
Just put your phone in the glovebox and I'd bet you a car you don't get a distracted driving ticket over the next year "by a power hungry cop."
