Perhaps this police officer has been to too many accidents caused by distracted driving.
I have a really good buddy who’s a firefighter. He’s been to his fair share of accidents caused by distracted driving. He has no time for any of that. I once watched him chuck another guys phone out of the car because he was checking texts and driving. My friend warned the guy once, then twice and on the third offence the phone went out the passenger window.
We still joke about it when we drove past that spot.
Also I’ll never understand the whole checking your phone while driving. What the heck is so important that you need to look at your phone while driving? Even at stop lights. It’s like some people turn in to teenaged girls about their phone while they’re driving.
