Why is this asinine? It is illegal in NY, you know. Or is it illegal because he's black and The Man is trying to keep a brother down?

Bust a law, Busta?

You'd think a multi-millionaire like that would have a bluetooth earpiece.

It's actually asinine because they're encouraging the people who believe he's an honest-to-goodness gangsta.

As someone who was hit by a schmuck who was too busy talking on her phone to drive, I support laws banning drivers from talking while the car is moving.

I'll be impressed when he's a victim of 'busta face'.

"which was recently made illegal in new york"

If you consider two years ago recently, I guess.

he got it cause his music has gone to shiat in the recent years... long gone are the days of when disaster strikes... busta come on... where have your talents gone?

Great, if we can fine him for not being nearly as good as he used to be, that'd be even better!

How about a ticket for being Busta Rhymes?

Sucks that they can pull you over for it, but they do. I remember the week after that was put into effect. A cop was standing on the corner of every exit off the West Side Highway watching for cell phone drivers, and pulling them over to where another cop was just gleefully writing out tickets to the tune of up to $150!

Thank god he wasn't drinking a Mountain Dew.

Shouldn't this have a HERO tag? Talking on a cell while driving and thinking that you aren't distracted by it or more dangerous to other drivers is Asinine.
 
2006-11-06 03:15:32 PM  
Asinine....no, not at all. It is a law.

/Now only if we can get something for those bastards with f-ing dogs on their laps when they drive.
//Seriously, WTF is that?

Here is my problem with the law. My car was totalled when I was rear-ended at a red light by a lardass woman who was shoving Taco Bell in her mouth at the time. Where is the law banning fat broads from eating gorditas while they drive?
 
2006-11-06 04:07:45 PM  
Asinine? He was driving.

Good for the cops.

/hates people driving + on the phone.
 
2006-11-06 04:33:22 PM  
He was given a ticket because that's so daaaaaaaaangerous, it's so daaaaaaaaaaaaaaangerous, driving while you're phoning is daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaangerous!

Hm, I talk and drive all the time, and I don't so much as swerve. I've never hit anyone, or even come close while doing so. I usually focus more on driving than to the conversation, which angers some people, but I'd rather miss out on some of your petty bullshiat than to wreck my car.

Mentalpatient87-I usually focus more on driving than to the conversation, which angers some people, but I'd rather miss out on some of your petty bullshiat than to wreck my car.

Yeah, that's bullshiat, but keep believin' it. I guess you're the same type of guy that "drives better after I've had a few beers". I mean, whatever. Do what you want. But don't act shocked, and I mean SHOCKED!, when you get pulled over for it. Not that anyone ever does. It always amazed me how badly people drive down here in New Orleans. Then I started looking around at the drivers around me at a stop light and noticed every single person around me was chatting it up on a cellphone, then it became clear. You can't hold a conversation with someone that is not witnessing traffic conditions around you and still be completely aware of your surroundings.

Well, Apache Helicopter pilots can, but most people, who I'd like to add are already shiatty drivers to begin with, can't pull off this feat safely. Not to get the big internet penis, but I'm waiting for the day a person on a cellphone hits my car, so I can sue the ever-loving shiat out of them for doing something that's been widely publicized to be illegal. And if they're intoxicated, I'll make sure they never see another penny again. If you're not going to drive responsibly, don't drive. For everyone else's sake.

I had a funnier headline the other day when I submitted this story.

Personally, I've more than once dropped my cell into my lap or on the floor if I need to make a really quick lane change or otherwise aggressively avoid a collision. It scares the shiat out of whoever I'm talking to unless I can squeeze in a "hang on-fark!", at which point they know I'm avoiding something. I've been lucky enough to only be talking to people that know what's happening when I say that, and when I get back on the phone I usually go on a minor rant about
whatever just happened.

/farking Denver.

///It's only a problem if you allow it to be.
////Even the cabbies suck ass. WTF
//head+ass=accidents.

How many close calls would have been avoided if you stayed off your damned phone, or at least went hands-free?

I'm glad he was ticketed - this needs to happen much more often.

/was almost run over by some asshat on a cell phone
