ABCs of Fighting a California Cell Phone Ticket

ABC’s of Fighting a California Cell Phone Ticket - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Are you a driver who tried using a speaker phone far enough away from your head to make it look like you were hands-free but still got a ticket? Police are hip on these common “fake- it” techniques. Here are some tips for fighting that cell phone ticket you’ve got - just remember your ABC’s:

  • A- Authorized purpose. It is not illegal to use a phone for emergency purposes or while on private property, so you can argue you were using your phone for an authorized purpose.
  • B-Bringing up music. It is illegal to use a phone in a manner that is not hands free to communicate with another person. Smart phones these days have other purposes so you can argue you were bringing up music or some other non illegal purpose.
  • C-Copies of your call log. It is your word that you were not on the phone against the officer’s word that you were. Beef up your testimony of the events by showing the court a copy of your call log which shows no calls or texts were made or received at the time of the ticket.
