Q: I've been told troopers are handing out tickets to drivers who slide their vehicles into ditches. I recently saw a state trooper vehicle in the ditch being pulled out by a tow truck. Would that trooper be ticketed just the same as anyone else? I often wonder about this whole driving while talking on a cellphone thing and then observe law enforcement doing the same thing and typing on a laptop computer while driving. This makes very little sense to me. A: Same as for everyone else, it all depends on the circumstances.
