POLICE STATE ALERT: LAPD conducting “zero tolerance” texting/cellphone crackdown 10/5 & 10/26 October 5, 2010

Thanks to Jay for the heads-up on this one. Good lookin’ out, Jay! ‘Preciate it!

If you are unfortunate enough to get cited for one of these, please fight it. This is supposed to be an “add-on” type of citation, not an actual reason to pull people over!

For example, one time I got cited for not having a front license plate & when I called in to delay the court date (so I would have more time to prepare my case), the person I spoke to said the citation was improperly issued & dropped it on the spot. I didn’t even have to appear!

Police State Alert!

Today, October 5th, the LAPD will be conducting a “zero tolerance” crackdown on drivers texting or using cellphones without a hands free device. While the police always claim this is about “safety”, it’s usually really about revenue as all drivers caught in this sweep will be cited without exception. Another “zero tolerance” crackdown on drivers will be held on the 26th of October as well.
