San Bernardino Police Department


Next time you’re stopped at a red light and see someone on the side of the road holding a cardboard sign you might want to read that sign, otherwise you could end up losing your license. How exactly do we go from ‘avoiding the gaze of that homeless person holding a cardboard sign’ to ‘you losing your license and having to ride your bicycle to work/school and being that bro with permanent pit stains’? Well, let’s take a look at a recent sting operation held by the San Bernardino Police Department (in California) that led to a comical number of citations for people texting while driving and driving without wearing a seat belt.

Officers in the San Bernardino Police Department set up a traffic sting operation during which they stood on the side of a highway off-ramp, dressed in their street clothes, each holding cardboard signs stating ‘I am not homeless. SB Police. Looking for seat belt / cell phone violations.’, and they then proceeded to ticket the ever living sh*t out of drivers stopped at the red light while getting off the highway who were either not wearing a seat belt or who were fidgeting with their phones.

The NYDailyNews Reports:

Four officers with the San Bernardino Police Department camped out along a California highway off-ramp posing as panhandlers as part of an undercover sting to bust distracted drivers.
