Drivers on cell phones

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by Donnybowhunter, Mar 1, 2020.

  1. As I drive by people, and see them texting or staring at their phones....I like to honk at them. Am I evil or just harrasing drivers?

    This is Mn. latest cash cow. $175 fine for using your cell phone while driving. They are writing tickets by the thousands.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    And that’s all it really is is a cash cow.

    When I was in high school I had a CD player hooked into my stereo with all kinds of wires and a book of cds to flip through. I can still legally do that but I can’t hit the next button on my phone. What a joke.

    Don't know about evil(nebulous unfounded concept), harassment is a possibility. Disturbing

    the peace or something like that is possible. Could you be held liable/responsible for causing

    an accident/incident if it led to that? Possible?

    Not likely unless he stopped and admitted to it.

    Lol you're likely to honk at them, startle them, and then watch as they swerve and crash right into you.

    Most every new vehicle out there comes with a touch screen that requires you to take your eyes off the road to operate. My Pickup has a warning that pops up2 or 3 times a week stating that its dangerous to take your eyes off the road while using a touch screen. This message will pop up as I'm driving and it requires you to hit a "yes you agree" icon on the screen. All other functions on the screen are dead until you hit "agree". That message won't just go away until action is taken. Yet I can get a $175 ticket if I'm caught glancing at a cell phone while stopped at a stop light. Its a screwy world out there.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    Using your phone or holding it?

    I drive in a few states with this and they all say no holding the phone while driving. Purchase a phone mount and you can legally touch the phone while driving.

    I don't think they sell a phone mount for @rod extra large key pad phone.

    There appears to be a fine line on this. If you are trying to set something up ( Where too?) or typing a simple "yes or no" to a text or anything like that you will get a ticket--even if stopped at a light.

    oldngray nowhere special

    People fiddling with the radio can be just as much a distraction. Legal though.

    Or eating. Or women who legit do their entire hair and make up while driving to work.
