    Got my first traffic ticket today =(

    Gaarrrrgh!! After 10 years of driving, being pulled over 5 times, and talking my way out of 5 different tickets, my luck finally ran out I was in lunch time rush hour traffic and my stupid butt was on the phone and he got me. Gaaah. My ticket will arrive in the mail and he has no idea how much it is going to be. Nice, real nice.

    Distracted driving really gets to me. My life is worth more than your phone call.
    Hopefully that ticket will make you think twice before talking while driving.
    No sympathy here..

    Did you get pulled over for talking on the cell phone or for doing something else. Are you bragging that you got pulled over 5 times and got away with it because that makes me afraid to be on the same road as you....

    Personally..I'd rather someone be on the phone than texting on the phone.

    But, at least you were actually doing what you have a ticket for. I got a ticket for running a stop sign I never ran..on my fifth trip down the road when I had seen the cop sitting there the last four trips. Same cop who was there, but WASN'T there that fifth trip. Couldn't talk my way out of it and I'm still pissed I got the ticket.

    If you don't want to get pulled over for being on the phone....get a blutooth.

    I've never talked myself out of a ticket because I own up to the ones I earned, and the cop won't ever back down if they ticket you for something you didn't do.

    Being on the phone in the car is dangerous as it is distracting. Pull over, or just wait till you get there.

    Bluetooth is good for hand's free but you are still distracted, especially if the line is fuzzy.

    Studies have shown the issue is talking on the phone while driving is the problem and it doesn't matter if it's hands free or not.

    Same could be said just for even having a passenger in the car, or a dog, or a child, or thinking about something going on at work. Distractions everywhere. Admittedly talking on the phone is a distraction but at least with BT you have both hands immediately free in case of emergency.

    Don't disagree a bit, just saying hands free laws are a load of c**p. We have state law for distracted driving and they still passed a hands free law.

    Lol so much hostility and judging people here I see. Heh. I was in bumper to bumper traffic so decided to call a friend. I very seldom drive while talking on the phone...hence why I don't get a bluetooth. Anyhows, I have been pulled over for other times for minor issues as in not utilizing turn signals and ignoring proper signage and slap me silly if yall have never ever in your life went above the speed limit, made a you turn when not allowed etc...people on here think they are saints sent from heaven. I swear. I'm not asking for sympathy, just felt the need to vent a little.
