I’m not an advocate of texting and driving but I am an advocate of not creating a problem where none exist. This is what really annoys me about this cop’s attitude:
Myer said he sees most people typing away on their phones while waiting at red lights.
“Most people think they’re safe there,” Myers said.
However, he said it’s still illegal.
“At a red light, you’re still driving. according to the law. You’re on a roadway, behind (the wheel of) a car, in charge of it, with a vehicle in drive,” Myers said.
Laws are written to resolve a problem in society, not to create a problem for someone who isn’t causing a problem. I know I’m in the minority of a lot of my friends in saying this but texting while stopped at a traffic light and not impeding traffic is not causing a problem for anyone. Why does this officer think it’s necessary to create a problem for these drivers when these drivers aren’t causing a problem?
