Kobe Bryant

LAW VIOLATOR

in $329K Ferrari

8/22/2012 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_kobe_bryant_ferrari_cell_phone_launchKobe Bryant can afford a $300k Ferrari ... but for some reason, the NBA star hasn't sprung for a hands-free device for his cell phone.

Bryant was cruising down the 405 Freeway yesterday ... steering through traffic while yakking away on his hand-held cell phone ... a major no-no in the state of California.

In fact, Kobe's lucky he wasn't spotted by the CHP -- 'cause a talking-while-driving ticket usually runs around $159 for the first offense ... and $279 for subsequent violations.

We're sure he can afford the ticket ... but you can't put a price on safety.

why should he care about other people around him or the bad example he is sending .... he generates money for executives who take money from all you pedestrians, the same pedestrians he has no regard for at all ! !

They sold it to us as a $20.00 fine. Stupid California voters. The court costs double the fine.

Doesn't t this car has its own built-in GPS system? For $300K it better have one. I'm sure he could just use the bluetooth feature to make hands calling, ect. I guess he's too old school and stubborn to use it.
