I'll never get over the fact that people still text while driving on the highway.

"This might result in serious injury or death, but by golly this text is more important than that."

In NC, you can't text and drive. But you can email, browse the web, etc while driving.

So if a cop pulls you over, you just tell him you were emailing. Duh.

Default Re: Highway patrol officers drive semi-trucks to catch drivers texting

Not a bad idea if they have an officer riding shotgun doing the spotting, but if they expect one cop to drive and look for texting drivers at the same time, isn't that almost as dangerous as what they are trying to prevent?

Not buying it. They are trying to check out how much road head is going on out there.

Ehh...they're prob seizure vehicles, so they don't have much if anything in them.

Wonder how many of them are actually licensed to drive them (CDL)

I've almost had a cop pull out in front of me because he was playing on that damn computer they have in the car.

Default Re: Highway patrol officers drive semi-trucks to catch drivers texting

I'm on the road a lot driving around the state and I see cops just as often as anyone else texting. Also see truck drivers texting which is more scary than anyone else. There are sevearl cases of cops losing their jobs after being in accidents caused by their own texting.

Let me preface this by saying that I only use speech-to-text while I'm driving because I actually value my life as opposed to some people, but...

I'll say cops can write tickets for cell phone use just as soon as they make their in-car computers shut down whenever the car isn't in park. Yes, I have seen police officers using their computers while driving down the road.
