    Most of what's "super" about big city cops in the US, are their salary demands, egos, and arrogance.

    It's illegal in the UK to text/call(without handsfree kit) but I still see one or two every day on my 15 minute commute to work.

    Cellphones should be disabled when they are within 3 feet of the steering wheel in a vehicle when it is running and in gear. The only exception should be emergency numbers, they should never be disabled under any conditions.

    What device are you playing with while downloading porn? As far as I can remember you said you never owned a cell phone...:D

    Text & driving??? I find just swearing & making rude gestures at other drivers takes up 99% of my time behind the wheel nowadays, I wouldn't find the time to send text messages as well.

    @Capt
    To a certain extent you are correct about the police force in the big cities of America. Where you will have a few stellar police officers the rest tend to be lack luster at best. I have personally seen more cops talking on their phones then previously before. Funny thing was I watched a cop who was talking on their phone pull someone over for the same thing!!

    It was probably the cop calling the driver to warn them not to answer the phone or he'd pull them over.:p
