Just escaped a cell phone fine in LV! Take care all.

We were conducting some business in Las Vegas last week and I had forgotten about the law regarding using a hand held cell phone (no talking or texting). We were hurrying to an appointment and I was calling to say we were running late when the red lights came on behind me. The officer was very kind when he saw my out of state drivers license but warned me. I easily forget about the $250 fine since it isn't the case yet here. I just thought I would remind those who visit so you don't lose your gambling money before you get to the casino. :-)

You're asking people to take care when breaking the law intentionally/unintentionally. Wonderful.

Maybe I was not clear. :-) I want people to be aware of the law. I deserved a ticket. I knew the law but between states simply forgot. The officer was kind but others may not have the same experience.

Yep, be careful out here. Vegas driving is information overload enough to most people let alone the distraction of a phone, even if you know the area. Plenty of crashes occur because of this. Not to mention you need to be able to react to all the other people who are either lost or locals who are impatient and in a hurry.

Thank you Shrinkgirl. I was not aware of the law. Never drive in Vegas but will remind my friends.

It being Las Vegas they should have a deck of cards you could cut to go double or nothing on the fine.
