How is this an FML? You broke the rules and got a ticket. Research shows that people using their cellphones while driving are only slightly less dangerous than drunk drivers. If you're going to do it anyway, get a decent headset or handsfree kit. That way you'll at least see where you are going.
That's a retarded law because it's still legal to talk with bluetooth. Crashes caused by people on phones aren't caused by a hand off the wheel, they're caused because the driver is focusing more on the conversation than on driving. Either make it illegal to talk while driving regardless of whether or not you're using bluetooth or just scrap the law.
To number five. Only and idiot can't talk on their phones and drive. If all your doing is getting out the important info and not having a conversation. Holding your phone to your ear is not the problem, its letting yourself get distracted, the same way people let themselves become distracted by changing a CD, or by having someone else in the car. I see people driving terribly all the time with that stupid blue tooth in their ear. If your able to keep yourself concentrated on the road, talking on your cell phone to report something, or even just to get some important information like where your going or who to pick up its not a problem. The problem is stupid people who are easily distracted.
That sucks man. I'm sure if you explain to the judge they should drop the ticket or at least the fee partially.
As much as I hate when people talk on their cell phones while driving, I have to admit that billboard is horribly misleading in that case. I agree, FYL.
