    I read the story and the comments and it amuses me how people are so stupid.

    I ride a Harley and agree distracted drivers with cell phones or drunk drivers need to be stopped. How ever a lot of people have no clue what the bikers are protesting about, they think the bikers want people to text and drive but that isn't true.

    They are protesting the check points. First it is a Safety check point, then a DUI check point, then a cell phone check point....a slippery slop to check points to "I need to see your papers" that was represented in Germany 1930-40.

    Oh, you haven't heard? The laws need not apply to those sanctified individuals who don the state's holy costume jewelry upon their chests...

    Oh, that's easy, unless they are responding to an emergency, you shouldn't have any problem tailing them. Just start driving and call 911 while driving 'cuz that's the only exception allowable to non-emergency personnel.

    Ironically, you are also excepted if you are on an emergency call. A friend of mine suggested if a cop pulls you over for talking on your phone you immediately say "Wow, you got here fast."

    $50 is the fine only, administrative fees and courts costs bring the total fine up to nearly $150 depending on your jurisdiction...


    The article quoted the Sergeant, he was radioing "Green Chevy Blazer. The phone is in her left hand," Kisfalvi said into a walkie-talkie. "White Toyota two-door. Her phone is in her right hand." I'd love to have been stopped at this check point:

    1. Officer issuing the ticket probably didn't actually see me on the phone, only his Sergeant did. Hearsay anybody?
    2. Officer issuing the citation can't prove he stopped the "correct" green Chevy. That's a really bad description... Might've been another one right next to me that they missed.

    That is very funny.
    My modified version.
    Wow!!! You got here fast! What do you mean? I was calling in a reckless, speeding driver texting on a computer. Really? What was he driving? A black and white car.
