No, I have not received an answer to my question. If I don't get a reply by Monday, please cancel my question and refund my $30.00 as I need to get myb letter to the court by the end of the week and I will be out of time.
I was charged with talking on my cell phone while driving. I was talking to someone but it was on speaker and I had the speaker of the phone next to my ear so I could hear. My biggest concern is not having this on my driving record due to the fact that I do drive a company vehicle and I'm concerned that it may cost me my job because it is company policy to use an ear peice. My ear peice was available but it was not charged. This is the first time that I've been sited for such a violation as I am very careful to abide by the company policies set. I can write a letter of explanation rather than appear in court so I would like to be able to word the letter so that the court will see it to lesson the violation to just a fine and not deam it a moving violation that will go on my driving record since my job is very important to me and my driving record is very good.
I just don't know how to word the letter.
