Cop Filmed Playing Poker On In-Car Computer Driving During Rush Hour On Unplowed Road (InformationLiberation)
Wednesday January 8th, 2014
The new year brought some 40,000 news laws into effect throughout the United States. In Chicago, one of those laws was a ban on using a cell phone while driving. The studies which showed such bans may lead to more accidents because people hide their phones below eye level rather than stop using them were ignored in place of political hysteria and the demand to "do something."
Incidentally, the people tasked with enforcing such a cell phone ban have dashmounted computers with huge LCD monitors in their patrol cars. As you can see in this video just posted to YouTube, some use these in-car computers to play online poker while driving in rush hour traffic on unplowed roads during the "polar vortex."
Cops engaged in such "typing while driving" incidents regularly crash into people while casually using their in-car computer. Here's a local news report out of Arlington, Texas showing it's an epidemic. Nonetheless, cops are explicitly exempt from all these distracted driving laws.
