Re: Obstruction of View - GPS Mounted on Dash
OP, I agree with your assessment. If you had been charged with CVC 26708 (a)(2), that would have been a different story, since paragraph (a)(2) states:
Note, also, that paragraph (b)(12) DOES allow a GPS to be affixed to the dash -- but only in certain places:
Quoting CVC 26708 (a)(2)
So, legally, you can have it on the far right or far left -- but nowhere in between.
Quoting CVC 26708 (b)(12)
But, again, you were charged with a violation of (a)(1) -- if you're sure that the officer's "1" is not really a "2".
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
