Ive ridden Rt 28 more than a few times even though I deplore it. I honestly don’t think its illegal because the cops were just scratching their heads asking us if we were high and laughing at us. They said they got a ton of calls through 911 from drivers on their cell phones.
All the other cops that yelled at us through the night (without pulling us over but yelling out their windows at us) told us we don’t belong on the road and don’t ride on the roads.
Cops don’t actually know what the law is in most situations.
