accidents on the roads. today we're hearing from sergeant jeff richter.... he's going to tell us what's driving metro crazy. "what's driving me crazy, absolutely crazy, at work is what i see. it's people using their cell phones, electronic devices at the stop lights. they're easy to spot because there's always like a big car length ahead of them, with no one in front of them. and the other ones, that when the light changes, everyone's going and they're still sitting there on their device going away and not paying attention to what's going on.
lot of tickets just for people doing that. so, what i want them to understand is it's illegal in this state. we have a hands-free law to use your electronic device, cell phone, whatever, at the stop lights. and if we see it, we'll give them a ticket for it. "it's most ages. the age that i least see it is the elderly, but it runs a spectrum, and it's all ages. i mean i get it...you're at a stop light, there's nothing going on. i used to think they were for resting. unfortunately, you're noy going on around you like the pedestrians crossing. but more importantly, the person behind you that's waiting for the light, it's green, they're trying to get to work and it's green and you're just sitting there on your phone wasting time. they have to honk to get you to go. "i see accidents...basically what happens , when you're on your device, the light changes, people behind you start going 'cause they think you're gonna go, and then there's a rear-end accident. so, at times,
going, and they don't have enough space between the cars, you're actually causing the accident by not moving when traffic is supposed to be moving ahead of you. so yeah, it does cause accidents because you're not paying attention to the lights and it's causing accidents behind you because you're not moving. ((demetria obilor)) >> we are a hands-free state. you can talk on the phone using a hands-free headset... if your car has bluetooth capabilities, you can hook that up. according to the dmv, your first non-moving violation. the next offense will be a moving violation, and it's four points on your license. what's driving you crazy? remember, you can write me at. traffic 8 at las vegas now dot com. back to you.///
