It took less than two minutes for Officer Kha Bao to spot someone talking on a cell phone. Bao had been sitting in his car, tucked into a driveway near a 55 Freeway offramp in Costa Mesa, watching as rush-hour commuters passed in front of him. Less than five feet from his cruiser, a blue BMW with a Dodgers' license plate frame rolled slowly past. The driver held an upside-down smart phone close to his mouth as he talked and looked straight ahead. "I don't think he even realized we were there," Bao said as he hit the gas and then the brakes to swerve around a corner and pull over the car. "That's what part of distracted driving is. " After writing a ticket for about $160, Bao drove back to his stakeout, watching for more inattentive motorists exiting the freeway.
