So the other day I got caught looking at the GPS on my phone at a red light and I got the hefty $490 fine that is now given for "distracted driving". The fine is whatever, I can pay that, but because I only have my G2 license I supposedly get my license suspended for 30 days. This is the problem, I work full time and driving is imperative to my job. If I get my license suspended I will most likely lose my job. Is this something they will even care about if I go talk to a prosecutor for a resolution of my ticket? I simply cannot lose my license and I just don't know how much they will actually care about my life and well-being. Will I be able to talk them into not taking away my license as it will basically ruin my life? Has anyone been in a similar scenario who can help me out?
As stated earlier the Ministry is in charge of suspensions and you will get suspended for this offence unless you beat the charge. Being on a GPS while being the driver of the vehicle is an offence and as you've said you were on your GPS . The odds of the officer not showing are slim to none. If i were you (and your saying you can pay it) I'd just pay it, get the 30 day suspension over with and fine alternate transportation... the suspension is likely inevitable.
