Over the past 12 months, some 10,800 tickets have been issued for driving while talking on cell phones in D.C., netting more than $1 million. Over the past five fiscal years, the District has issued an average of nearly 11,700 tickets a year, earning a total of nearly $5 million. By contrast, only 962 tickets have been issued for all pedestrian and biking offenses combined. This is yet another reason to do anything but drive around here.
