headsup: cell phone trap in Burnaby

Kingsway @ Nelson west bound

no one i know had been caught yet so i'm just guessing they r aiming at phone users or seat belts. they are there almost every day! so watch out.

and no i don't use my phone when i drive. i do believe it is dangerous.

another common intersection is Willingdon and Lougheed Hwy in Burnaby. a cop stands at that busy intersection during the afternoon/evening rush hour and looks for ppl using their phones or txt'ing at the red lights. he will hide behind the giant skytrain concrete pillars.

so funny watching him do it from the opposite side. he just hides behind the pillar and peaks his head out as if he were Solid Snake with a bright green vest on, haha.

You will see them parking their squad cars in the old Morrey Nissan lot of on the center island when they are catching the people in the west bound lanes.

Saw them there 4 days in a row last month.

Even though you post these kinda of post on here, do you think its going to help?

many threads have you seen here whining about people getting a SPEED ticket and asking how to get out of it.. if they didnt want to get it, then they shouldnt be speeding.. lol

^ ya, what about speed trap warning (also on news1130) or someone high beaming you to warn you about cops?... Fucking be thankful.

OP is not encouraging cellphone use, its merely a headsup for saying cops are enforcing law, so dont break it.!

As RCubed once said: You can pay attention while still going 10-15km/h over but if you're texting you're not looking whats ahead of you at all. There is a difference.

What's his excuse to the officer when they were writing him a ticket?

no excuse. he took it like a man. you can't give an excuse at this type of situation anyhow.

the cop startled my friend tho. he was looking down at his berry, while the police officer jumped out from behind the pillar and said to him "is that a black berry?!"

I think this thread is a useful reminder not to use your phone ANYTIME while driving. cops are out there looking, even while they're driving their own squad car.

How do cops see if you are on your phone or not if you're just looking down and texting?
How close is he? or does he have binoculars from an elevated position?

Just curious, cause I can't picture it.

I have nothing to worry about though,
I'm probably the last person in the mid 20's generation still on a flip phone with no texting plan (which means I never text).
