Technology is a gift and a curse.
Trucker Brian Miner said he pulled over the officer in Illinois. The officer then told the trucker he was going to write him a ticket for “unlawful use of a horn.” He also said police are allowed to use technology while driving.
Miner says the trooper was speeding and holding his phone while driving on a wet highway. So when the trooper approached, threatening to give him a ticket, Miner started asking questions.
The trooper never said he was speeding, and said he doesn’t remember having his phone in his hand. But he did tell Miner that the law is on his side, as seen in the video.
When the trucker told the officer that the whole thing is being recorded, the officer seemed to change his tune.
The officer goes back to his cruiser with the driver’s information, comes back and says the trucker won’t get a ticket.
