Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
Can you describe what you were doing?
I was driving on Safety bay road 12pm Sunday 16th June when i grabbed my iphone to change music for the bluetooth. A police office was flashing his lights for me to pull over. After he pulled me over he said that i drove past them with my phone in my hand and that i was texting. I then Replied with "no i was using my music device for the Bluetooth player and explained that i wsn't aware that i couldn't do that and i wasn't making a call or texting. He said that i couldnt use my mobile phone at all while driving and issued me with a $250 fine and 3 demerit points. I don't understand how harsh he was. My driving record has been 100% in the past 5 years with no pints. He walked away and wouldn't listen. Isn't it strange how you can do other actions like eat, make up do your hair etc. read a magazine whilst driving But as soon a you pick up a phone. Ileagal
No similar offences at all. Got done for DUI about 7 years ago
It only gives me the option to have it heard by a court
Do i need to explained what happened in the letter or just request for it to be withdrawn?
