    Oh, I see it all the time here, too. Semi drivers or regular, yakking away.
    I was just curious if it made it that way.

    The day after it passed in Alberta, and officer pulled over a lady eating a bowl of Mr. Noodles while driving.

    Joe, just how would YOU enforce it?

    People are allowed, in our state, to call 911 or parents. So, you can't just pull everyone over who is using the phone. You bet that if a person is in a wreck, we will check the phone to see if they were texting at the time and ticket for it.

    So, what is your solution?

    LEO are exempted from the law for two reasons. They go through extensive drivers training annually and are considered somewhat better drivers than the general population. However, many dept regulate this themselves.

    Also, since everyone has scanners and our frequencies, these days, some sensitive work is done by phone and in-car computers. So, we have to use phones while driving.

    I hate texting while driving no matter WHO does it. Our dept says no texting for us, too.
