Layinhp raises a good point. As I understand, using the hand mic gets you the same ticket as using a cellphone. You can risk it and use it, invest in bluetooth or just use it while stopped. I normally just listen for entertainment anyway.

Thanks for all the help, DaltonDad!

Sorry, I mispoke - you're right, it's still legal for now while the truckers sort out the change to a hands free system. I did hear some chat on other forums saying that the extension only applies to truckers and that personal vehicles can get the distracted driving ticket if you use the hand mic. I don't know if that's actually true because I haven't taken the time to look into it.

There's definitely some colourful language on there! It can be pretty funny, especially when one driver does something to upset another driver after a long day.
