The first deals with the CrownÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s appeal of R v. Kazemi. Kazemi was an earlier case in which it was ruled that momentarily holding or moving a cell phone was not illegal. The Court of Appeal has disagreed, stating ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“Road safety is best ensured by a complete prohibition on having a cell phone in oneÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s hand at all while driving.ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â
The second deals with the CrownÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s appeal of R v. Pizzurro. Pizzuro successfully argued that the Crown couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢t show his cell phone was in working order at the time he was stopped. The Court of Appeal has disagreed that there is any such onus on the Crown, stating the functionality of the device need not be proven.
