Just about every emergency response service (police, firefighters and ambulances) still does rely on CB for dispatching and reporting. I doubt governments will ditch spectrum reserved for emergency services any time soon.
Not even close. As explained, CB is a public use band.
And ask NYPD and NYFD how their systems worked on 9/11 when they lost the WTC complex. Most of their fancy digital communications were rendered useless in a matter of a couple of hours.
