Alright, so i'm the last guy on earth to get on the cops about anything, i've never had a bad experience in my many dealings with them (even when i was being a drunk idiot or riding illegal bikes on streets haha) But i thought this was kinda funny.

I was just standing in jugo juice waiting for my protein shake when i see this old ass granny gunna cross the road at a snails pace, and then she stalls stepping off the curb like she's going to get ran over and a cop just kinda comes flying up and slams on the brakes, texting :rofl:

anyway's i'm quick on the BB phot draw so i'll throw that on. what do you guys think though, should i have waved him over and apporached his window and said "sir do you know why i'm pulling you over today?"

Submit that photo to the Herald or Sun, or Global News. Would be a great segment to watch.

Reminds me of the C-Train Crosswords thing, but too bad this picture isn't crystal clear. Still worth a try!

I think the story is well worth it, because not only was he texting, but the lack of attention could have caused a deadly accident. :D

It even has the vehicle number and you could also state the time of day the photo was taken too. Win-win!

Some officers are actually enforcing it, at their discretion. Not everyone talking on their phone will get it, but if you are texting or doing whatever and weaving all over the place, you might get a Driving with undue care and attention ticket.

Completely different law that has been on the books and enforced for years. The Alberta Distracted Driver legislation doesn't come into effect until September. If I recall correctly, the new legislation provides a much, much lower level of PC needed for a stop or ticket.

I don't see any problem with with posting a pic at all. Officer was driving unsafely and doing something that almost caused a potentially fatal accident. Anyone else in the same position, having been seen by said officer, would be ticketed on the spot and potentially earning six points for driving without due care and attention.

I don't get the white knight comments, this copper clearly needs a refresher. What about the headline had granny not stopped?

People are currently getting warning tickets for this law until Sept1. Once Sept1. hits no more warnings will be issued and people will start getting actual tickets. I can see lots of these being issued initially.

nope, it's illegal

http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Distracted+driving+Sept/4991633/story.html


Drivers can soon forget about devouring a breakfast burrito while combing their hair on the morning commute, as the province looks to crack down on distractions behind the wheel.

The Alberta government announced its wide-ranging distracted driving law Wednesday, which prohibits drivers from using hand-held cellphones, texting, e-mailing, reading, writing and personal grooming.

Under the law, drivers are not allowed to hold a cellphone, even if it's not in use. Hands-free or voice-activated devices, however, are still permitted.

Minister of Transportation Luke Ouellette said the law will help reduce collisions on Alberta's roads.

The law -which comes into effect Sept. 1 -carries a $172 fine.

Ouellette said the tickets are about safety, not a cash grab, and police won't be hiding behind billboards trying to catch distracted drivers.

"We don't want officers out looking for people just doing this particular activity," Ouellette said.

"If all of a sudden you open a chocolate bar and take a small bite of a chocolate bar, we don't want an officer giving you a ticket for that. But if you have a Quarter Pounder in front of your face and you're using both hands and driving with your knee, you deserve to get a ticket."

As far as electronic devices like music players and GPS units are concerned, drivers can't do anything that requires more than a single touch, and will have to program the device before setting out on the road. The ban is in effect at all times, and drivers will have to pull over to make changes on devices.

Wildrose MLA Paul Hinman said the ambiguous law leaves too much open to interpretation. For instance, while drivers aren't expressly banned from fiddling with the radio or driving with screaming children, should those activities impact their driving, the law can be applied and the driver fined.

"They really don't have it definitive on what you can or can't do," said Hinman, who was driving and speaking on a hands-free device at the time. "We already have legislation for poor, reckless and dangerous driving, and we should leave it at that."

He said the rule targets drivers holding prohibited objects in their hands rather than poor drivers, and questioned where the line is drawn. He said if the province were serious, the law would allow insurance companies to go after distracted drivers who cause crashes the same as if the drivers were drunk.

Police said the fines are a way to penalize drivers who pose threats to the public while not necessarily meeting the criteria for stiffer charges of careless or reckless driving.

Const. Jim Lebedeff of the Calgary Police Service traffic unit said drivers have to realize the role distractions can play in crashes.

"This is dangerous what you're doing behind the wheel," he said.

"Are you going to take a life? Yours? Are you going to seriously hurt somebody? We don't want that to happen."

Lebedeff said the fines were one more tool for police to deal with dangerous drivers. He said while distracted drivers might not meet the criteria for the stiffer fine of careless driving, their actions are still potentially dangerous, and the fine signifies that.

"We want people to realize that driving is a full-time job. We want your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel," he said.

"The education is going to start now."

You can't even touch your phone even if it's off


Can I send a text message or comb my hair when I am stopped at a red light?

No. You cannot engage in distracting activities when stopped at a red light, delayed in traffic or waiting for a train. You are still driving and engaged in a traffic situation. To be compliant with the law drivers need to be legally parked before engaging in the restricted activities.

my gf's dad had a distracted cop on his computer rear end him a few years back. Cop quickly changed his story after the accident (initially said it was his fault, then changed it to the dads fault) and claimed that he lane changed into him too closely and didnt leave enough space for the cop haha:rofl: . Then jsut to add another layer of bullshit to the story, the CPS tryed to get him to pay for the "damage" (chipped paint) to the cruisers ram bar up front :banghead: :banghead:

06-30-2011, 07:56 PM

I've seen night shift passenger cop SLEEPING while filling up at Esso (Midnapore), the driver cop filling up smirking at me when I took a glance, gave me the: "Yea, keep walking/fill ur own gas, can't do shit to us, cuz we da mofo police" look... and he's 100% right.

He's only human. Night shifts are a whole other animal.. Especially 12 hour shifts. Sleeping is a part of them a lot of the time.

In my field of work people sleep all the time, some positions like mine you just can't however.

Since this was proven to be more dangerous than drunk driving, shouldn't we lock him up for life? If it wasn't a cop, and it was only a drunk guy, everyone would have their pitchforks out.

Umm, I work long hours and sleeping isn't understood to be a part of my shift.

The fact that my shift happens during the day and another persons happens at night should make zero difference.

For the uninformed:


Emergency staff are exempt from this law while in the execution of their duty.



Having said that, even with the law protecting the emergency members, if you observe the member driving dangerously while texting, then its worth noting.

At least with the phone your somewhat "headsup" as opposed to the car PC where youre looking down at the console (while driving).



AND

While I'm sure there will be exceptions, from talking to CPS members, the spirit behind the law is that the CPS wont be pulling people over merely talking on their cell phones *IF* they arent endangering anyone.

In other words, you have to be driving like a real idiot to get pulled over for something like distracted driving.

Here is something constructive:

Firefighters sleep all night, every night, and you trust them to put out apartment/house fires and save lives. Not to mention emergency room doctors often have their own beds where they can sleep at hospitals... and they are counted on to save lives as well. Come to think of it, EMS also has places to sleep.

A 5 minute nap in a car doesn't sound so bad now, does it, a-hole?

I don't see a problem with an officer catching a quick nap on his shift. As long as his partner is alert & awake to answer any calls that might come in.

If they both go and park somewhere and pass out for the whole shift though that is where I would have a problem.

But officers texting and driving IS something I have a problem with. They shouldn't be allowed to do something and than pull someone over and give them a ticket for the exact same thing. Not to mention texting and driving is pretty damn dangerous.

Agreed. Do what you gotta do, just answer the call and improve the safety of the community. I'd rather them take a nap then tazer or shoot somebody in err.
You know, like a guy swinging a chair around in an airport. On the other hand, maybe more tired cops would mean more dead crooks...

Your argument does not really fit.

Fire and EMS are an on-call basis. If there are no calls, they do not have anything to do so they might as well sleep.

A police officer may not have any calls on a slow night but they are expected to do other things in the spare time like patrolling. They should never have free time because from what I read in the papers there is, if anything a shortage of officers. If they have spare time to sleep their position must have become obsolete and they are no longer needed as an officer.

I am not sure how it works with breaks as a police officer but if your on a lunch break or something, I don't see the problem with sleeping in your car. Everybody deserves their breaks.

1101 is the 1 district Sgt, thats it. The first number (1) designates patrol, next number over is district, the next number is zone (as sgts dont have a zone its a 0) then final number is car number. Likewise, say 1601 is the 6 district patrol sgt.

The big guy on the block is 2900. Thats the on call duty inspector.

If you're in a situation where you cannot speak, the CPS has a dedicated texting line. For example : If your home is being invaded while you're inside. The number is 274637 I believe ...

Yes and your text wouldn't go directly to the officer. :rofl: :rofl:

It would go to the dispatch and they would radio it to the officer like any other call.

There is no reason why this officer should have been texting and driving.

texting was just an assumption, could have been viewing youporn mobile for all we know haha

Seriously, some of you need to drink a big cup of cyanide.

Care to explain? "Oh wow" what? Did you accidentally hit post before you finished typing or something?

Wait a minute.... dammit, did I just get "trolled"? Everyone else should of gave me a heads up. For some reason I thought KandabashiDevil was actually giving his honest opinion. I guess I am a "retard" like the toddler said.

Those in car computers have an MSN style system. So the only time the officer would be using his PERSONAL phone would be to talk to other officers about things they dont have code for (or is really inappropriate) or someone not in the CPS is texting them (or any other personal reasons, email, Pr0n, etc).

I dont have a problem with the napping or texting but NOT WHILE DRIVING. They are pushing and pushing this law.... it should be up to the Staff Sargent to lead by example.

A police officer may not have any calls on a slow night but they are expected to do other things in the spare time like patrolling. They should never have free time because from what I read in the papers there is, if anything a shortage of officers. If they have spare time to sleep their position must have become obsolete and they are no longer needed as an officer.

It depends on your assignments, districts, stacked calls etc.

Some areas are quiet and have plenty of down time to do paperwork in the car or have the occasional nap - other areas, like perhaps 4 district, dont allow you any down time.

In addition, there was a shortage of detectives - members with enough experience to become ones anyways.

1101 is the 1 district Sgt, thats it. The first number (1) designates patrol, next number over is district, the next number is zone (as sgts dont have a zone its a 0) then final number is car number. Likewise, say 1601 is the 6 district patrol sgt.

The big guy on the block is 2900. Thats the on call duty inspector.

My bad. He's still a district sgt which is a high rank? :dunno:
