Police warn that talking on a cell phone or text messaging on a cell can be highly dangerous. Some states have made it illegal.
Public safety officials advise drivers to pull over to make or receive calls and send messages.
On a recent Sunday evening in Lake Oswego, that's just what a driver did. But rather than pull over, the driver elected to stop in a lane of traffic on Boones Ferry Road to talk on the phone.
Police found the driver, who got off with a warning.
