Having established as legitimate the use of cameras to robotically ticket people for "speeding" and "running" red lights – timed to go red quickly, so as to ensnare as many drivers as possible – it was only a matter of time before the principle was extrapolated – now to include automatically ticketing people for using their cell phones while driving.
But it's more than just cameras now – and it will be more than just cell phone use that's targeted for confiscation (of your money, that is).
Because why shouldn't it be?
If it is okay to steal people's money (which is what we're talking about here, shorn of the euphemistic language about "fines") for those things, why not this thing?
Why not anything the government and its corporate "partners" who profit from it decide is ungood?
