In North Bay, Ontario, a police officer sat in a line of cars that did not move through two full traffic light cycles. At the third red light, the officer got out of his patrol car and walked up to the first car in line to see what the problem was. Expecting to find some emergency, the officer instead found a driver thoroughly engaged in a cell phone conversation. When the officer asked why the motorist wasn’t moving when the light turned green, he was told by the driver that since it was illegal to drive while talking on a cell phone, the driver was simply sitting still until the call was finished. A verbal thrashing by the officer quickly ended the motorist’s call.
