My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA, LA County
I just received a cell phone ticket, but wasn't using my cell phone. Cell phone was in a pants pocket & not in view. The officer said he saw my hand up to my head & using a cell phone. I did have my hand up & was messing with my ear (yes its a dumb excuse), officer was traveling in opposite direction & pulled a u-turn. I explained this to the officer & he didn't care. I asked if he'd like to see the cell phone history, his response was that I could have deleted the phone call.
Couple of questions:
1. Ticket says an infraction - does that mean it will impact my insurance?
2. Are cell phone tickets cumulative, if I get another would the cost go up? IE is it like a parking ticket or a speeding ticket.
3. I'd like to fight this in court & do I stand a chance? If I get the Verizon wireless bill & show that there were no phone calls for an hour in either direction will this be enough to convince the judge? Will a printed bill from the web page be enough, or do I need Verizon to send me a copy, or do I need something more like a certified copy of the bill?
