My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA
I received a citation for 23123A - driving while on cellphone. Initially, I thought to just pay the bail but when I found out that for $20 fine I have to pay $142 bail I think I should fight it.
The truth is that I was holding my iPhone to my ear, however, I was listening to a podcast, not using the phone part. The car was noisy and even at the full volume I couldn't hear it. In effect, I was using the phone as a portable audio player rather than the phone.
I have records from ATT showing that I was not using the phone at the time of the citation. Will that be enough to prove my innocence?
