Today, I was driving home and got a phone call from my mom. She called to tell me that there was a cop at the bottom of our hill, and to be careful. I got a ticket for talking on my cell phone while driving. FML

I thought they can't pull you over for talking on ur phone. Doesn't there have to be something else to pull you over, but he can give you a ticket after that fact? (sorry for awkward wording)


It depends on the state and/or if you are in the city. Here in VA if you are in the city you can't use a cellphone (but no one gets pulled over anyways) and if you are not in the city it's a secondary offense...which is what I believe it's called. And in DC you can't use a cellphone.

Shouldn't have answered your mom's call that close to your house anyways. Seems somewhat pointless to chit chat with someone when you're only moments away from seeing them.

The road up their hill could be fourteen miles long. That's not exactly momemts away. Or maybe the mom had just passed the cop on the way to the grocery store, so she wasn't at the house. Or maybe the mom underestimates how fast OP drives, and she was closer to the house than expected.

There are several explanation that render your argument invalid. Please try again next time.

The point is, if you know that your state officers can issue tickets for talking and driving, then don't answer your phone. YDI. I live in Washington and my loved ones know that I can't talk when I'm driving.


Shut up... I think it's stupid to get a ticket for talking on the phone because the op could still see what's their doing, it's not like they were texting. People like you annoy me.
