Police State USA writes:

A man was startled to receive a text message from a strange number chastising him for using his cell phone while driving.

After admittedly taking a phone call during his daily commute, the driver received an unsolicited text message from a number he had never seen before.  It read: “Get off the phone when you are driving!”

The sender then provided an identity of “Illinois State Police Officer Robinson #54367.”

Police State USA was alerted to this strange new enforcement technique directly from the driver, who wished to remain anonymous.  After interviewing the driver and seeing the message directly on his phone, there is little to doubt about his story.

OK, that’s creepy. And how, exactly, did the state police officer obtain his cell phone number….?  

Thanks to Joe Cadillic for this link.

    I’m not sure if it’s my browser or something else, but the link to the story wasn’t showing up for me.

  2. It wasn’t your browser. It was my memory failure to actually include the link. Thanks!
