Correct answer is:
  • (A)  True
According to MeldonLaw.com, a primary offense is an offense for which a law enforcement officer can stop a car and issue a citation for violating a specific law. Secondary offense is an offense for which a driver or a passenger can receive a citation but only after a driver has been pulled over for a primary offense. The most common examples of secondary laws are not wearing a seat belt, violating curfew for minors, and of course the use of cell phones while driving in most states.
