Unfortunately cops are exempt from these traffic laws. It is sad, but true. I was nearly in a wreck because a cop was using his laptop while driving and he came over onto me. I was able to avoid it, barely.
It's not uncommon for them use their laptops, text, and do other illegal activities while driving.
I have been trying to get video of them doing this... I call out for everyone to post to Youtube any video you get of cops texting or using their laptops while driving.
