The always dapper Erik Rivera was busted for talking on a cell phone by New Rochelle’s finest — and he is planning on fighting back!
Getting pulled over in New Rochelle… For talking on my cell phone… Yet my new car has Bluetooth. Guess who’s fighting this ticket?
Ummm…good luck with that. He ought to chat with C.K. Sample about fighting tickets in the Queen City. Obviously Erik is not familiar with New Rochelle.
Erik would have known better if he was reading Talk of the Sound:
Recently, an internal review within New Rochelle Police Department concluded that the department was not writing enough tickets for driving while talking one a cell phone. During roll call, police officers were put on notice that they needed to step up enforcement of the law against driving while talking on a cell phone (note to teens: presumably that also includes driving while text thing). While many drivers will no doubt applaud a crackdown on reckless behavior while driving, the rank-and-file within the department were unhappy with the way in which the decision was communicated. Things came to ahead after the girlfriend of a son of New Rochelle’s Deputy Police Commissioner, Anthony D. Murphy, was issued a ticket for driving while talking on her cell phone.
