    It’s a national disgrace; I’ve just gotten on to the freeway, driving north, and the traffic is fast and dense.
    Saw an accident a couple of miles back; what’s the bet the fool was on the phone.

      It’s a good thing you pulled over to post this and became a visual distraction.

    It’s a good thing to improve the penalties the infractions are up because they can get you for anything really plugging your phone in at a red light etc.

    This is a serious issue that could be resolved by technology not ticketing. Unfortunately that is not how government is approaching the subject. Just another cash cow to support fat police salaries.

    Up 37% is a meaningless statistic. All it means that Police are ticketing more. This is “Fake News” style reporting
