Seriously cops?

Today, my friend who drives an 08 accord got pulled over today in NJ for holing her GPS in her hand. I think this is total bull****. I don't know how many people on here have actually driven on NJ roads but they're a tad bit difficult if you are not from around here. Also, i high recommend buying a double-din radio that has navigation built it but not everyone can afford this. (Unexpected creations, 6spdcoupe contact them, and they'll help you out) Then to add insult to injury, the cop decides to take her PBA card instead of writing up a ticket that shouldn't exist in the first place. But while this was going on, I'm being cut-off and people are almost hitting me with no cops to be found. WTF!!!!!

Driving isnt the time to be reading books, talking on the phone, playing videos, texting, etc., etc.

First off they are allowed to take your PBA card they dont have to give it back... The way you worded it sounds like she didnt get a ticket so why complain? Where you were when this was going on? If you were on the side on the road on the shoulder you shouldnt of have that problem...

As 4Whldrftn said driving isnt the time to be fiddling around with any devices your concentration should be on the road

Cops are busting down on every thing. Need the revenue to stay in business. The fastest driver or worst does not always get caught. It is the ones they can get to the quickest.

Not a very effective revenue generator if the cop doesn't write a ticket.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

That is true. But in general the police departments have been using that practice for forever. But more in resent years due to economy. Here in Georgia for example: window tint, lights, tags, speeding and etc. I have do not have a problem with that. Breaking the traffic laws is just that, breaking the law. They do need to be enforced. But in his friend situation is just that, it was his turn. Just put down the device and you will not get busted.
