    Other Violations: Re: Holding a Cell Phone While Driving

    It depends on where you are. Some jurisdictions will cite (and even convict) for holding phones, while some look for actual phone use (holding up to ear) to cite.

    For what it's worth, using the...

    Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Cell Phone Use, CVC 23123.5(a)

    I'm trying very hard not to, but he keeps 'correcting' me with his own faulty logic and incorrect assumptions.



    Because TG said so?

  4. Other Violations: Re: CVC 23123. (A) Hand Held Wireless Telephone Prohibited Use

    I don't have 'a judge', as I have not been fortunate enough to be cited for this. It seems however the statue is interpreted differently from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, even judge to judge. What a...
  5. Other Violations: Re: CVC 23123. (A) Hand Held Wireless Telephone Prohibited Use

    Actually, I wrote that before I've had a chance research the statue (and probably to be amicable to opposing views). I would say today after researching further and looking into the law and...

    Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Cell Phone Use, CVC 23123.5(a)

    The part that allows a person to use the 'Contacts' application in your cell phone per 23123.5(c)? Please don't tell me you are going use a strict definition of 'applications' now after using a broad...

    You can if you are using it for reading, selecting, or entering a telephone number or name in an
    electronic wireless communications device for the purpose of making or receiving a telephone call per...
  8. Other Violations: Re: CVC 23123. (A) Hand Held Wireless Telephone Prohibited Use

    Because that's the statue under which people are getting cited for holding their cell phones.



    I never argued that at all, that is your misreading/assumption. I argued getting cited for HOLDING...
  9. Other Violations: Re: CVC 23123. (A) Hand Held Wireless Telephone Prohibited Use

    This being 2012, there are many uses for smart phones beyond talking. GPS, music player, traffic info, etc. I'm sure you know that. Many of those uses do not require more attention from the driver...
  10. Other Violations: Re: CVC 23123. (A) Hand Held Wireless Telephone Prohibited Use

    Thanks for the reply. I appreciate hearing from LEOs on this.



    One could argue that using the device in that manner is not 'using a wireless telephone' else the law would have specified...
  11. Other Violations: Hand Held Wireless Telephone, Prohibited Use, CVC 23123(A)

    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...

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    Can you get a DUI in California for 'sleeping it off' in your legally parked car? Note at no time is the vehicle operated/driven...
  13. Towing: Re: Vehicle Towed from My Own Assigned Parking Spot

    If they towed our vehicle contrary to their own policy, then I think they should reimburse you for ALL your towing expenses. If they won't, take them to small claims court. Chances are, the time...
  14. Re: HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    Thanks cdwjaval. I already checked my local parking ordinance - it's the standard continuous 72 hours with no overnight restrictions. Also this ordinance # was printed on the PD tow warning sticker...
  15. Re: HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. The vehicle is not violating any laws. The 72-hour notice is standard for 'abandoned' vehicles, except the car isn't abandoned. It's driven frequently and I live in the next...
  16. Re: HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    Thanks for the suggestion SChinFChin.

    Well today I found a 'this vehicle will be towed after 72 hours' day-glo orange sticker from the local PD on my window, after parking there half a day (not...
  17. Re: HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    I checked and there are no private road/development signs. It looks like every other suburban public street and there are many vehicles parked on it.

    Should I be pro-active and talk to the local...
  18. Re: HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    In such cases there should be signage posted for legal reasons right? I do not see any such signage but I will check again.

    I would love to contact the HOA :), but unfortunately they did not...
  19. HOA Threaten Tow on Public Street Based on 'Suspicious Vehicle'

    My question involves towing laws for the State of: California

    Does a local neighborhood HOA have the power to initiate a tow at will from a public street? I came home tonight to find a homemade...
  20. Towing: Re: HOA Towed My Car from Resident Parking Space While on Vacation

    I agree with your points and the intent, but it seems with the signs anyone parking there is in violation of 22658 (a) (1) since it's 'private property'.

    There is a popular bar there - patrons...
  21. Towing: Notification After Towing from Private Property

    Long time reader, first time poster.

    Got a question for cdwjava (or any California LEO out there).

    From reading 22658 (a) (1), it seems the intent is to provide notification in case someone...
