    It's illegal in Connecticut to. There is no way LE can enforce this law effectively. Do you remember how many decades it took the police to get people to wear seatbelts? Instead of creating new laws, why don't they just ask the police to enforce the laws that are already on the books?

    Speeding kills far more than cell phone use. The police have lost control of this problem. They would be better off using their limited resources to tackle this problem rather than cite for cell phone use unless it clearly was a factor in an accident.

      Its not really enforced in New York either. Inside our park its printed on all the vehicle passes so we enforce it. issuing tickets at least shows the client that we are not asleep. As an aside I was once out on the highway in our crown vic and as I started to pull forward after the traffic light turned green I noticed the driver behind me was on his cell phone. He saw me and we made eye contact, He then looked at his cell phone, looked at me and quickly put it down. He obviously wasn't sure who I was.

        Tough to read the post orders when it's not updated. I have yet to work at a site where the information is reliable.

          As the Supervisor at my site. My officers may use their cellphones discreetly and only when they are not on an assignment. Family and Friend calls need to be kept to a "Hey, Im at work, I cant talk now" conversation, and time may be given for a conversation such as setting a doctors appointment.

          As for post orders. I update them as fast as they are revised. I try to limit revisions to no longer than 72 hours.
