City of Troy tells drivers to pay attention or pay up!


The Troy, Michigan City Council has a message for you – as of July 29, 2010, do not drive distracted, do not eat behind the wheel, do not comb your hair, do not pet your dog.  Effectively, do not do anything other than keep both hands on the wheel.  If you do, you could face a ticket for violating a new local ordinance.  Be careful out there.  The police will no doubt use this new ordinance as a pretext to investigate other matters.


The local ordinance goes into effect July 29,2010.  Fine amounts for the primary offense have yet to be established by a local district court.
