Ticketed for Texting BUT I WASN'T TEXTING!!!
Posted by: Angry Citizen ()
Date: July 05, 2013 08:07AM

So I have today off but promised my manager that I would listen in on a network maintenance call this morning that started at 6am. I went to get some gas for my truck and I had my cell phone on and sitting on a cell phone holder (see picture below).

I hit a dead zone on the way to the gas station and lost the call I was on. I was aware of the new laws, and decided to pull off to the side of the road and redial into the conference bridge and rejoin my call. To do this, I had to take the phone out of the holder. (It's a conference call so I couldn't just press "redial" on my phone, because you have to enter the Passcode to join the conference bridge). After I had rejoined my call, I put the phone back in the holder, THEN GOT BACK ON THE ROAD. I was pulled over by the cop within 10 seconds of getting back on the road.

The cop gave me a ticket and told me that because I was in my car, with the engine running, and using my phone, that's why I got the ticket. When I explained that I had pulled off the road to get back on my call, he simply told me that there was nothing he could do for me and gave me the usual bullshit about paying online, court dates, etc. When I got home I read the ticket closer and showed that he had issued the ticket for "Texting while driving." This was over in Fairfax right near Fairfax circle.

PS: When I listen to the conference calls in my truck, I have it on speakerphone and don't hold it in my hand. This whole thing is so ridiculous!

You shouldn't be listening to calls in your vehicle (hands-free or not). It endangers everyone around you because its divided attention!!!!!!!!

You know what's ridiculous. Driving around in an oversized gas guzzlers to compensate for the facts that your a fatty, loser, and if your male that you have a teenie weenie.

Good for the cop, he got you fair and square. Next time he should also write you a ticket for being a loser and sissy cry baby.

I'm actually a good looking guy, that works out everyday. Maybe you like being pulled over by cops for nothing.

LOL Note someone tried to claim they weren't a fatty, but didn't mention anything about their teenie weenie secret.

You violated the law idiot. Maybe that's also why you bought your overpriced overcompensation mobile because your an idiot.

I just don't like to brag. :)

What law did I violate? I wasn't texting and that's what I was ticketed for.

Listening to your phone is not against the law.

Even if he was texting, my understanding of the law is that it only applies if your car is moving.

Personally, I think the new texting law is silly. We already have reckless laws and laws about paying full attention. Why make a specific law about texting? What about playing a game on an iPad while driving, reading a book, or tying my shoe?

I even pulled off the road and I was never texting, just redialling into my conference call from my cell phone (on the side of the road).

The police should pull you over daily for anything they can for being such a pussy sissy and crybaby.

Not to mention your a lier. The fact that you have to even mention going to the gym is proof that your a fatty in denial. So if your gonna lie in your head about that, I'm sure your slandering the police who did a good thing by pulling you over.

This story is such BS. I love the effort of OP to go this far though to create a situation right on the fringe of a defense for the brand new law to try to get us riled up. OP likely doesn't own a truck, let alone hold a job that requires a weekly password protected conference call.

LOL The "truck" Is probably some 15-20 year old beat up Broncho or other crap SUV that barely runs. There conference call is probably them calling their boss at McDonalds/Walmart or their parole officer/welfare office/baby momma.

Dear Fairfax County Police,

Please continue to pull over this lying crybaby. Not only are your protecting our safety from this lunatic by preventing him from killing someone, you are also providing us with entertaining stories on Fairfax Underground. You could also help him to lose weight by forcing him to get enough points where he would loose his license and have to walk to the gym so that he would get an actual workout instead of him hogging all the machines at the gym by sitting on them for 10 minutes before he does 5 reps on some pathetically low weight setting.

I'm very happy and you did a great job pulling him over this morning! Please continue to pull him over whether it's texting, speeding, disobeying cross walks, running through red lights or reckless driving. In fact I would really love to see him get a reckless driving ticket.

Thanks!

Get the following items:

Your phone records from your bill
The log of the calls from your phone showing two calls at that time
A picture of the spot where you were pulled over

Your phone bill will show that there were no texts during the time frame in question, it will also support your argument about the conference call & the picture of the spot where you were pulled over will coincide with your story & where you were eventually pulled over.

Go to your court date, present the info to the prosecutor and get the case thrown out. Maybe make a bit of a stink about having to waste a day of vacation for this BS.

Matter of fact, if I were you, I would insist on a trial, present the info to the judge and make a big stink about having to take time off of work etc to deal with an inept cop and a ticket quota.

Angry Citizen,

We will eventually have this law removed when everyone takes their case to court and proves each time that they were not texting, but making a phone call or checking their calendar instead. This law is ridiculous; as many have already said we have laws on the book for distracted driving.

I don't condone texting and driving (actually put it as dangerous as DUI) but I can't stand to see peoples rights getting trampled on and becoming victim's of the law.

Stay strong everyone. We will need the support for the upcoming legal battles.

I'm a contractor, so the day I go to court I will not be paid, unless I go into work earlier and stay late. Oh and I intend to make a big fuss over it.

It's such a shame we got off on the wrong foot, I was going to give your ugly ass a pity fuck, but I can see you're too busy whoring it up for the county. C'mon Katie, get the Commish's dick out your mouth!

Yeah, hopefully it will be replaced with a ban on ANY talking on or fucking around with your phone while driving instead of paying attention to your driving like you should be.

The truck part is the only part that I believe, actually. Probably one of the "platinum" ones with all that douchey chrome all over it. :-)

Another self-righteous, entitled asshole. You have no business listening to conference calls while you're driving. You are endangering everyone else with your selfishness. Take the call at home before you leave or get to the office in time to listen in person. I don't care what they charge you with, as long as it gets you to stop.

I agree with Katie.

90% of the pickup trucks are operated by drunk rednecks and there's a 70% chance after 4pm that the person has been slamming beers at the work site or at some bar.

If I was a cop and saw three mexicans in a pickup truck or some beat up van I'd be all over that shit in a second!

Let's see how urban dictionary defines contractor:


"Someone who doesn't have the skills or talent to hold down a permanent job. They are inherently lazy and sneaky.
example Gareth and Simeon are contractors because they can't get real jobs".

Katie,

Why does every one of your nonsense posts have to do with "overcompensation"?
Honestly I don't see anyone else talking about it, and most of the time you just bring it into the topic when it isn't relevant.

Better call 3:
1. For Needs angry management citizen who is just mad because he got caught and then called out on being a fat overcompensating loser.
2. For monkey's inc. and there messed up childhood memories that stimulate their overactive imagination.
3. For not Girth but Fat Brooks you just can't handle the truth.

Taking credit out for any vehicle is stupid which is why I wrote a check for the last SUV I purchased.

Sounds like someone really loves the new law and can't stand if a "real" citizen gets riled about it. If the cops are going to write me a ticket, at least write a real ticket and not for some bullshit.

Oh look fatty matty the overcompensater decided to pipe in. I think he should take it to the judge too-that way the judge can mock him in front of everybody and he can pay court costs and then we can all laugh when he comes back here and posts his next cry baby story about how unfair the court system is because they don't excuse your tickets because you have a teenie weenie.

Actually, he'll probably get off. The new law pertains to texting and not using GPS or GPS apps. Hopefully, he showed it to the police officer that wrote him the ticket. That being said, Katie I have to agree with you, I don't think anyone should be texting, talking, listening to calls while driving as it is big distraction.

For those who have suggested that the OP is a troll, and this story is bogus, I would recommend that you look at the picture again. The OP says multiple times he was in his "truck". Well, if you take a look at the logo in the center of the steering wheel (which is only partially visible), as well as the logo in the center of the tachometer, this is the dashbaord of a BMW. Last I checked, BMW didn't have too many trucks here in Fairfax County!

That's obviously not a picture of my truck. I posted a picture of what the cell phone holder looks like. Didn't you wonder why there was a logo of the company in the upper right hand part of the picture?

I noticed that too, which is why I call bs on the fact the the overcompensating OP claims they weren't actually texting. They even left the name of a site on the picture which is a site where people buy things another indication the picture is a fake. They probably drive some ugly beat up gas cheapo gas guzzler like a broncho.

I doubt it, I already had my cell company pull the records for that day and email them to me. Kind of hard to get a ticket for texting when I wasn't texting. Cell phone usage records rule!

You can get a ticket for texting but they don't give out tickets for smoking or eating while driving. I have found those distracted drivers to be just as dangerous. Why not ban all activity while you are driving?

I wanted to give everyone an update. I went to court on this and they threw it out. It is not illegal to be pulled off on the side of the road (out of traffic) and doing stuff with your phone.

This law is full of holes. For example, dialing a number isn't 'texting'

Manually enter multiple letters or text in the device as a means of communicating with another person; or

That says nothing about numbers. Just text and just letters. A letter is not a number.

It also doesn't cover texting by using voice recognition.
