Like any other ticket, request your disclosure, and review the law that you were charged with violating.cnbobby wrote: ↑Apr 13th, 2018 2:08 pmN license in BC
I was using the navigation on my phone while the phone was magnetically mounted
the car was stopped at traffic and policy just wave me over to the parking lot besides and give me a ticket for it
also there was a light bulb (LED, light blue, got it from ebay) and she also issue a ticket for it
going to the court in May, any suggestion how should I fight it? thanks!
In BC, it looks like you can only operate a cell phone in a “hands free manner”. That would mean, apparently, no poking it with a finger. So how were you “using the navigation system”. Looking at it? Giving voice commands? Or typing in an address?
As far as the “stopped at traffic”, that’s no help for you. Unless you’re pulled over and parked, you’re not allowed.

Class N drivers aren't allowed to use any electronic devices, including hands-free devices. You're screwed.

You could be looking at a license suspension. No idea if they will or not, but they can. You may want to consider hiring representation.As well, the driving record of any GLP driver with 3 points or more – from distracted driving or other offences – will automatically undergo a review by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles – see the Driver Improvement Program page for more information. If the Superintendent issues a driving prohibition to a driver in the Novice stage, the 24-month Novice driving period starts over when the prohibition ends and the novice driver gets re-licensed.
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD...
You can also look here... The screwing just doesn't stop...

There's a $175 annual increase on your insurance (assuming you don't get any more tickets in the year), and a $490 Driver Risk Premium (effective to infractions from March 1, 2018). Not sure if those are automatic, or at the discretion of a judge, or what...
