Contest a cell phone violation (CVC 23123):

We all know the feeling. You’re multi-tasking your way through a busy morning and you quickly use your cell phone while you’re behind the wheel of a car. Suddenly highway patrol magically appears out of nowhere, pulls you over and slaps you with a cell phone ticket. As you watch them drive away it’s easy to give in to the despair and just pay up. However, fighting a cell phone ticket is actually a little simpler than you may think, especially if you’ve done a few key things correctly.

 

So, if you’re one of the unlucky ones who has been pulled over and written up for being on your phone, there is still hope for contesting a cell phone ticket. Let’s go though some viable scenarios:

  • Were you using your phone via a voice-operated and hands-free operation and not actually texting?
  • Were you doing so while the device was mounted on the vehicle’s windshield, just like a GPS device, or at least affixed within regulatory standards to the dashboard or center console?
  • And could you operate it with a single swipe or tap of the finger?

 

 

While it’s absolutely illegal to use your cell phone while driving in a manner that isn’t hands-free, when trying to get a cell phone ticket dismissed you will need to know exactly what is or isn’t considered a lawful violation. Beefing up your case to the court relies on having current and up-to-date information about the legislature. These above points are just a few ways that you can prepare for your defense and contest a cell phone violation (CVC 23123).
