We all know the cell phone rule. But now we are going to be reminded by the NYPD. A zero tolerance policy is being put into effect. And as a survivor of a zero tolerance on parking, forced to go to some warehouse and fight for my bosses car without a registration I can unequivocally say...Zero Tolerance is no fun.
But what brings us to this point? Lets face it, Blue Tooth is fun at first and then it starts to hurt your ear. After a while you lose it and at sixty bucks who's in a rush to get a new one. EEEEEEEconomics 101....Recession 101, do without.
Now the realities of cell phones are interfering with the realities of life. A kid is run down and people want answers. A yellow cab driver is either the catalyst or the second one lost in the 2009 war of the cell phones that will now be waged by an underfunded New York City and an underfunded, economically challenged citizenry.
We should all practice saying: "I'm sorry your honor" And get used to hearing: "Next time maybe you'll pull over before you answer your cell phone. Bailiff lock him up"...
And as the Cabby Prince says? "Who weeps for the child lost in Harlem?"
