Really, Buddy?!?

If you haven't heard, Maryland is a hands-free state. About a year ago, they passed a law that made it illegal to talk, text, or email on your cell when you are in the car driving. This makes a bit of sense, however, news on the street is there has been more accidents due to people trying to hide the fact they are not sure this is working. But, I do agree on not talking on the phone when you are driving, well without blue-tooth or something modern like that. I used to do it, but I do feel having your hand up, holding your phone, can cause some distractions, and if nothing else just another blind spot. So, you can imagine my surprise when I was heading to gym with A today and I saw the following, as I pulled up to a stop light.

I wanted to do a citizen's arrest, but since I don't have a front license plate (illegal in MD), have no idea where my registration is, rarely remember to carry my license, and had my cute sleeping daughter in the car, I just snuck a quick picture. You better believe I plan on pulling this out as collateral next time I get pulled over though :)

  1. Too funny! And good idea about not mentioning anything to him. Somehow I think you would have gotten the worst part of that situation! Even better idea to hold it as collateral! :-)

  2. Wow! A citizen's arrest ...I would have loved to see the look on that officer's face!
