Did the "Motoring Public" pull over and stop before calling in information?

I heard driving while on your cell is as dangerous as impaired driving now, is that still true?

@crashed13

I do believe they make an exception to the handsfree law for the purpose of dialing in a 911 emergency. Besides, it would get get thrown out of court.

Regardless, even if this weren't the case, I would gladly pay the fine for breaking the handsfree device law if it resulted in the removal of a drunk driver off the road. A person's life is more worth than the fine.
