Over 9,000 summonses issued to motorists using cell phones
It looks as though certain places are really placing an all out watch for drivers using their cell phones. This is especially true in New York City where the NYPD issued over 9,000 summonses to drivers caught talking on their phone while driving. There was an apparent warning through various media outlets that there would be a zero tolerance campaign during a 24 hour period on March 12. Motorists aren’t too happy when being tagged with a $120 summons. Although 9,000 might look staggering on paper for one day, the total amount of summonses that the NYPD issued during 2008 was at 195,579. Let’s hope that everyone learned their lesson and start using that headset.
