    Our rights are being eroded day by day and bit by bit.

    The cops in BC have been going nuts, in my opinion, handing out tickets for just having a cell phone out in your car:

    https://globalnews.ca/news/6010793/distracted-driving-cup-holder/

    Josh Delgado was given the ticket on Sept. 23 in Saanich while he says he was stopped at a red light.

    Delgado said the phone was face down, plugged into a USB charger and connected to his work van’s stereo via Bluetooth as his employer requires.​

    How so in this case? I think distracted driving, when it actually occurs, is a legitimate driving offense.

    I explained it in my previous post. She did what she thought she needed to do to get out of a ticket and good for her on that. BUT, that was a BS excuse to pull someone over and then search her phone without a warrant.

    That’s the “reason“ she was pulled over. What happened next is what makes so many people shake their heads.

    Because if the majority of us agree that you are flirting with disaster for having a normal/real conversation/discussion/disagreement with a cop then the erosion has long ago happened .

    Cops have way more rights than you or I.

    Protect and serve ? Do that then.

    Joking around I'm sure, but not funny to all the decent cops trying to protect and serve while also trying not to get shot by the violent criminals we expect them to protect the rest of society from.

    Canada : “Sore-y !” :)

    US : “Did you say something ?! Tell me you didn’t say something - because if you did...” :mad:

    This is definitely a thread where knowing where posters reside is very handy at sussing out opinions/reasons for opinions...

    My cop story: Xmas party at a chalet on the ski hill. At some point people pile into a car to drive to Snowshoe Sam's in the resort village to continue drinking. Drive car off road. Cops arrive. Give people lift to bar.

    I’m on my phone and didn’t see the OP was Canadian. Love you guys, btw. It was still wrong to have to produce her phone. IMO, it would have been better to say “Document the exact minute you say you saw me driving with one hand on the wheel and when I go to court to fight this ticket, I’ll produce records to the judge showing that I was not on a phone call at that time. I’m not giving you my phone.”

    Seems to me it was actually in her favour to show the phone was buried in a bag. I would avoid going to court if I didn't have to, but then I'm not litiginous.

    I have tried the 8 & 4 recently in my Honda CRv, but after so many years of driving with the other position, as soon as I get going, I absent mindedly slide right back into old habits. No doubt if race car drivers use the position, there is an advantage.

    Maybe I missed the officer "searching her phone"?

    What I read was he asked to see her phone, in order to confirm that she was not using her phone while driving.

    It seems clear that society has had it with all the accidents caused by drivers texting etc.
    Society wants the danger curtailed, and what cops have to do is stop people who appear to be using the phone while driving.

    This is going to inconvenience lots of us, but not as much as being injured or killed by the masses who feel they just hafta keep up with texting while driving.
    The fact that young people are commonly in constant touch with their peer group puts them statistically in a more likely to text and rive group. That's too bad I guess, but IMO the danger we all face due to distracted driving is far worse.

    Do you have a solution that will not inconvenience anyone?
    The cell companies could track our cell use with GPS and disable text function when we drive?
    Our cars could have an ignition lockout so the car doesn't start unless our cell is in a built in lock box?
    Cell phones being used while in moving cars could automatically send alerts to law enforcement to ensure nobody who is innocent gets pulled over?
    Maybe cell phones shut down when GPS detects movement faster than 20mph?

    Really, how do we get protected from dangerous texting drivers without some sort of inconvenience?

    Very possible, but there's a time & place for that & this was neither.

    I kind of got the same buzz from the post as well,
    it all gets back to personal demeanor , anger and negativity or congenial quick thinking on your feet
    and if it turned sour her dash cam would have caught the whole incident any ways
