Admit it, most of us use the phone while we are in the car.  Many places prohibit using a cell phone in a school zone and some municipalities have recently made it on offense to text while driving.  Canada apparently has a similar problem.  According to a recent article in The Insurance Journal magazine the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, a Canadian auto insurer, with the help from local police, compiled a list of the top 10 excuses from local motorists when they were caught using handheld cellphones while driving.  The top 10 excuses were found to be:
  1. This is a bogus law.
  2. It was my boss on the phone- I had to answer it.
  3. I wasn't using it- I just like to hold it.
  4. Sorry officer, I didn't see you trying to pull me over because I was on my phone.
  5. But it was an emergency call to my wedding planner.
  6. My Bluetooth died.
  7. Driver: I'm using my speakerphone.  Police officer: No, you're holding your phone in one hand and steering wheel with the other.
  8. I'm not driving; I was stopped at a red light.
  9. I wasn't talking, I was checking my messages.
  10. I was just checking the time.
So, how about it- if you were caught driving and using the phone where you aren't supposed to, what would your excuse be?
