Using a handheld communication or entertainment device can trigger serious traffic offenses and tickets. A hand-held wireless communication or electronic entertainment device conviction can result in a significant increase in your insurance rates, or worse yet, could result in a suspension of your license.
The only situation where the driver has the right to use the handheld wireless communication device is to call 911. In every other case, the charges will be used as a countermeasure against the driver. Using a handheld communication or entertainment device while on the red light or the stop sign line is forbidden as well.
There are only a few ways to fight a distracted driving ticket:
We deal with such cases by requesting officer’s notes, preparing for your case, and presenting it to the court. We verify the notes and see if there are any inconsistencies in the proof or if it leads to reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt means that there is a possibility that the officer mistook your actions as distracted driving.
Using a handheld communication or entertainment device while on the red light or the stop sign line is forbidden as well.
