78.1 (1) No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway while holding or using a hand-held wireless communication device or other prescribed device that is capable of receiving or transmitting telephone communications, electronic data, mail or text messages. 2009, c. 4, s. 2.harry22g_s wrote: i just hold my cell phone in my hand nt was close to my ear
It doesn't matter that it wasn't to your ear. You don't need to hold your phone up to your ear to text message, check your email, go on the internet, or do whatever you do. Using your phone as an audio device is also prohibited if the basic controls can't function without using the normal buttons on your vehicle.
The options are on the back of your ticket. You can eitherharry22g_s wrote:thx 4 reply sir ... bt now i knw everything abt that......waht can i do nw .....
(1) Plead guilty
(2) Go to a first attendance meeting where you will still be asked to plead guilty, but they may give you a reduced fine, or
(3) go to trial.
If you choose to plead guilty to both or one of the tickets, they will show on your driving record and could possibly affect your insurance premiums depending on your policy. You have an opportunity to show financial difficulties (unemployed, dependents, welfare, homeless) with the JP to reduce your fine even further and request extra time to pay, even a monthly installment arrangement.
In Brampton, the crown will most likely withdraw both tickets if the officer is a no-show.
