Cell Phone/Hand Held Device
Driving with a cell phone or hand held device is a very common charge which carries fines in the hundreds of dollars. In addition to the hefty fine, insurance companies consider this to be a serious charge. They view it as one step away from an accident because the driver is driving while distracted. It is commonly referred to as distracted driving.
It is important to note that the law was not designed to prevent the use of these devices altogether; it simple focuses on holding the device and using it while driving. The law also applies to electronic entertainment devices and GPS units. These devices must be mounted in the vehicle in a location which does not obstruct your view, otherwise you may still be charged with the offence.
For example a driver was stopped at a red light and holding their GPS device to look up an address was found guilty of the offence. If you choose to dispute these charges in court be aware that if the case is mishandled the fine could be increased, even doubled.
