In NY State here is what is hot. If you have a phone in front of you or to your ear while in the driving lane you are toast. Since they have cracked down on this, the cases of people sitting at a green light while those behind are steaming has nearly gone.

I you are passing any emergency vehicle on the emergency lane with lights on, you must move over a lane if traffic permits. Multilane roads. They set traps for this.

I pass a state guy on the ramp nearly every day, if not he is down the road a mile or two with someone stopped. Must not be speeding as they whiz past the interchange at way over the limit. Someone going 50 will be stopped.

Here in WI, a law was just passed that is is illegal to use your phone driving thru a construction zone. I wish the idiot politicians would have gone with a law similar to NY where effectively phone use is illegal when driving.

I agree. I drive truck OTR for a living, and therefore I have a birds eye view. See it all the time, everyone has a phone either on their lap, or in their hands at top of wheel so as to be able to see the road and screen simultaneously, Pfffft. Truckers were mandated to be hands free, BUT why'd they stop there?? Cell phones and other handheld devices should be banned from use while driving ANY/ALL motor vehicles. Statistics are overwhelming.
