Submission + - Florida driver arrested for cell phone jamming on commute (yahoo.com)

Mentate writes: A 60 year old Florida resident was recently arrested for signal jamming FCC violations. Permanently unable to stand the thought of people talking or texting while on the road, The man used a signal jamming device to prevent any cell phone calls from being made or texts from being sent from cars near him. He did this every day on his morning commute, for 2 years! He was caught when a local phone company noticed the odd service drop on the same stretch of highway every day at the same time and reported this to the FCC. Local police knew that his car was the guilty one because as they approached it their radio contact with the dispatcher cut out due to his jammer. He has been fined 48,000 dollars due to these violations.
