    Every day the bus I’m on is crawling in traffic somewhere.

    Often it’s on Wilshire near the 405.

    Almost every driver I look down upon (literally more than figuratively) is texting/emailing. The rest are usually picking their noses.

    If I was a sworn officer, I could easily record their description/plates and relay to a motorcycle officer on the street.

    Is it really that hard?

    “Pretty Woman Actor Jason Alexander”? Is “Seinfeld” too obvious?

  • I agree with Brian. The only way to see texting is from above….such as from a high floor bus (or standing in the low floor area). One officer can ride and have others on motorcycles follow and detain.
