We've all seen sheriff's deputies plenty of times with their elbows in the air jabbering away on their handheld cell phones while driving. They all claim they possess some superhuman abilities that us mere mortals don't have, and that they can drive with one hand and hold the phone with the other. Never needing to use a turn signal, turn on lights/sirens, operate a spotlight, operate their radio, etc. Just need two hands one for their phone and one for their steering wheel.
My question is this. Why can't Mike Lewis purchase $35 bluetooth speakerphones that clip onto the sun visor for these deputies to use? They are readily available at Walmart and Amazon. Wouldn't that make more sense?? Certainly they can afford $35 per car with all of the grants they receive and drug money they seize? What's their fancy light packages cost per car? And their expensive huge SUVs that their supervisors drive?
Speaking of the SUVS, since I saw a deputy driving his department issued SUV on Beaglin Park Dr. just a few minute ago, heavily engaged in his phone call - don't those come with bluetooth speakerphones built into them? Why don't the deputies sync with them? Perhaps the police issue cars might not have bluetooth built in, but there's no way those SUVs don't.
How many single vehicle accidents have all 3 local departments had over the past 2 or 3 years again? Oh, I forgot, deer ran out in front of all of them, right?
