My question involves a traffic law from the state of: California
Can one get cited/convicted on CVC 23123 (a) simply by holding/touching phone? I've heard of cases where people were pulled over/cited simply for holding on to the phone (not talking) while driving. Seems to me to be an over-broad interpretation of the law, as it clearly states 'while using a wireless telephone', and holding is not the same as using. Many phones can also function as GPS navigation devices, which is clearly allowed by law.
