I talked to a Folsom motorcycle cop last week and asked about cell phone tickets. He indicated that they write a lot of them every day and it's easy, because it only takes a few minutes to find another one deserving of a ticket. Much faster than writing speeding tickets, which they also apparently write a lot of.
So at least where I live, they are
enforcing the cell phone law. But apparently it will take thousands of tickets before it makes a real difference.
