It doesn't matter if they can pull you over legally just for that.

That's where technicalities come in. "Well, I stopped you for not making a legal stop, or not properly using your signal".

" I saw you on your phone too. I'm going to write you up on the phone, but I let the illegal stop slide."

That's how they get people. They just follow you until you make a mistake. Technicality there too, they can't follow us without reason, then it's just "I was on patrol and witnessed..."

As it should be, no reason to be on the phone when driving, just another distraction you do not need. Pull over & talk on the phone.

I never really talk on the phone while driving anyway. If I do I use speaker phone.
