The problem I have with all these laws its that they are only about cell phone use.
I read an article recently that says police officers say it is almost impossible to enforce the texting law. One officer said her pulled a woman over because she was paying more attention to her lap than the road so he assumed she was texting. Turns out she was filling her nails! And the kicker is, that is not illegal so she got to drive off and keep filing.
The second problem is that if an officer pulls you over because he sees you with your phone in your hands, if you tell him you were not texting but you were simply using the GPS, or changing music, there is nothing he can do because the texting law specifically says you cannot use the phone to compose messages. But you can use it to browse music, etc.
Finally, even if you had sent a text message, if you deny it and say you were changing songs, he cannot prove otherwise because he had no authority to check your phone to see when your last text message was.
These laws are ridiculous and I am against them for the sole fact that they are virtually useless and are more for show than to actually make the roads safer.
