Woman Gets $200 Ticket For Applying Chapstick At Light

What would Suzy Chapstick do?

37 year-old Nevada woman Stephanie Fragoso recently told the press a Nevada Highway Patrol officer gave her a $200 ticket Wednesday for putting on Chapstick on her way to the Department of Motor Vehicles.  The Nevada Highway Patrol is currently involved in a zero tolerance campaign to crack down on distracted drivers.

Fragaso also stated she was at a red light at the intersection of Blue Diamond and the I-15.  When she inquired as to why she was being cited, the state trooper told her it was for applying makeup. She added: “I told him it was Chapstick.”

Being April Fools’ Day, she thought it was a joke until she received the citation. Fragaso also told the fifth estate: “He said ‘it could have been anything; you could have been drinking water, shaving your legs’.”

The current law states any driver can be cited for any distraction that removes his/her focus from the road and/or causes the driver to take his/her hand off the steering wheel.  The accompanying fine can reportedly range from $50 to $250 and Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Loy Hixson told 8NewsNow it’s an ordinance most residents aren’t even aware of yet.

He added: “It states that when a person is operating a vehicle they must provide full attention to the driving so that it won’t render that action to be unsafe.” Citations are given on “a case by case” basis. There are exceptions to the rule such as certain medical conditions.

Fragoso hopes to be more aware when she is behind the wheel. As a consequence of her “Full Time Attention” offense, she has received the $200 fine, points against her driving record. Additionally, she was ticketed for “Expired Registration” and “No Proof of Insurance”.
