It's about time they start getting serious with this. I am seeing way to many people still driving with their cell phones in their hands. They try to "hide" it by holding it in their right hand. Thanks CHP and other law enforcement agencies!

I am thrilled that the CHP and other law enforcement agencies are taking a stand regarding driving while on cell phones. I am shocked to see how many are not abiding by the law. Every time I am out driving, I see numerous people using their cell phones, with not a care in the world that they are not playing by the rules. Even crazier, I was driving on 880 on Sunday and saw a man driving, no speeding, with his left foot out the driver's window! Yesterday, while driving on 580, I observed a woman merging onto the freeway holding a hamburger box with her left hand while touching the steering wheel and eating a huge burger with her right hand! I hope that the crackdowns of violators will make others think twice before breaking the rules of the road. I wonder sometimes . . .

I would feel better if I didn't see law inforcement using their cell. Do they make their own laws. And yes I know they are exempt if using in the course of businessbut are they? By the way I saw an officer the other day not wearing his seat belt. Whats that.

Unfortunately, today (Aug 27 AM) I saw a CHP Officer talking on his cell phone held up to his ear while driving. He had an 'Out of Service' sign on his back passenger window.. southbound at the Santa Rita/West Las Positas intersection, turning left onto West Las Positas as children were walking to school. It is bad enough that many Officers don't use their turn signals and reinforce the inconsideration of all the idiots that do the same. Now this?
