I'd do it, at least a little, to protect myself. I try to be vigilant when stopped at the back of the queue, but prefer to filter forward at least a couple of cars. If the circumstances are unfavorable to a safe filter (big trucks, cars in bad positions, etc) I set myself up for lesser consequences if I were rear-ended. Will AZ cops hassle you for stopping to one the side of the lane, where you're less likely to be hit by a phone drone? Even if you're hit, at least you're not going to be sandwiched. Finally, I'd be calm, respectfully friendly, and honest with the officer if he stopped me. "Yes, I did it because it's safer. It seems like everyone is balls-deep in their phones these days, and I don't want to die at the back of the queue at the intersection." If he still cited me, I'd go to court and justify what I did. It's a matter of safety, for the same reasons. I might still be found guilty, but I'd try.
