Customer Question
I received a ticket...

I received a ticket for cell phone holding while driving, I just left my work and in 100 meters police caught me holding cellphone- I was putting it away from my jacket- not using it- should I fight it or plea guilty? charge is 490$ + 3 points- what are the odds to win this if I fight and what are the odds to reduce points or $ if I plea guilty? - thank you,

Lawyer's Assistant: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I am a pharmacst- left from Rexall pharmacy richmond hill on yonge street

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

Yes If I appeal

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No this is complete story from my side- i have 5 years of clean record in US and over 2 years in Canada- I have G license

So are you saying you simply left work and had your phone in your hand or pocket or something like that and was just putting it away like you would have your wallet, for example?

Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

Can you prove that you had not used it?

So you could show the recent calls and texts?
