If you are caught talking or texting on your cell phone, are cited and found guilty, you face a $75.00 fine.
The city has erected signs warning motorists of the new ordinance.
I see a driver using his cell phone. I pull over and pick up my cell phone and call Wilkes-Barre Police to report the infraction. A dispatcher then radios a patrol car to report the incident. The officer driving the police vehicle then takes one of his hands off the steering wheel, looks down and picks up his police radio to acknowledge the call and respond.
In doing so, the officer takes his eyes off the road momentarily and slams into the back end of an LCTA bus.
