Finally the ban has come into effect for PA… I posted about this a while ago and as of 12:01am yesterday morning it’s fully in effect. The fine is $50, but with courts costs etc it will hit about $136. I’m happy about it, but I’m not sure what it’s really going to do as from what I’ve seen people just don’t care anymore about laws really. I watch people all of the time go through stop signs, red lights, don’t use turn signals, and go the wrong way up one way streets around here. What pisses me off  the most I think is when I see the police do it, and they do it all of the time. People just don’t seem to care anymore about anything but themselves and personally I’m sick of it…

  1. I drive through PA all the time (I live less than 5 minutes from the border of PA) and was actually sent an email from my employer (based in PA) about this. I was on my way home from the office (in PA) and saw no less than 10 people texting. One of which WAS a cop. It’s crazy.

    I still find it hilarious to see people using their handsets to talk while driving when they’re in a car that obviously has a hands-free capability.
