On Sunday, comedian Randy Liedtke tweeted some iPhone-shaped cookies he’d made and said he was going to try to get pulled over and see what happened, because sure, why wouldn’t a cop find that hilarious? Instead, he wound up getting brought to the police station and slapped with a ticket for some of his unpaid parking fines. Supposedly.
Let us be very clear: we understand that some things people use phones for while driving are legitimately no different than looking at a map or changing the radio station. However, we really like laws that prevent phone calls or texting while driving, because we don’t like getting into car accidents or run over by idiots.
