Q: I was driving on the interstate and I pulled off onto the shoulder to take a call on my cell phone, which I thought was the responsible thing to do. As I sat there, a Minnesota State Trooper pulled in behind me, came up to my car and asked if I was having a problem. I told him I was fine, just answering my phone.

Is there a law that explains where you have to go or what you need to do before answering your phone while driving?
