This is response to Laile Atkin’s letter, dated Nov. 14, “Police officers must set example.” I agree with Mrs. Atkin.
If I am driving and talking on a cell phone, I am breaking the law unless I am using a hands-free device. Then it is OK to talk on a cell phone while driving.
So why can’t police officers, or any public servant, use hands-free devices, just like everybody else?
I am surprised that with today’s modern technology, all emergency vehicles are not equipped with Bluetooth hands-free devices.
