(Carson City, NV) — There’s a glitch in Nevada’s new law banning hand-held cell phone use while behind the wheel. Drivers are pulling off busy roads to talk or text. Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Chuck Allen tells the “Las Vegas Review-Journal” the shoulders along highways and freeways are for emergency use only. He hopes drivers will use parking lots or residential side streets instead. Troopers are giving out warnings through the end of the year, but will start issuing tickets to chatty drivers in January.
