Cell Phone Tickets $124 Today

Item: Hands off the cell; tickets are $124: Beginning today, if you are seen by police using your cell phone without a hands-free device while you drive you can be issued a ticket/Spokesman-Review

More Info: For two years, talking or text messaging on a cell phone while driving has been illegal in Washington, but not enough to warrant a stop by police unless another crime or violation was suspected. That changes today, when a law takes effect that moves the use of wireless devices while driving from a secondary to a primary offense, authorizing law enforcement to slap motorists with a $124 ticket.

Question: How much would you use your cell phone while driving in Idaho, if you faced a $124 ticket for being caught doing so?
