Potential Driver Distraction

There is now no question or doubt that cell phone use is a moving violation. Not only are the call or text functions prohibited, but also the use of a map for directions or sending and receiving emails are illegal as well. A California Appellate Court has made this ruling after the court case of California v. Spriggs, wherein the defendant was pulled over for using his phone while operating a motor vehicle. He wasn't texting or making a call, he was simply looking at a map, but the court ruled that since Spriggs was, as the law states, "using a wireless phone that wasn't configured for hands free listening and talking" this action is illegal. The law was passed in order to reduce potential distractions for drivers who use mobile devices, and thus ensure more secure roads and safer driving for all Californians. There is now no excuse: if you are on your mobile device or tablet you are asking to get pulled over and sited. The use of any application on your mobile device violates vehicle code section 23123.
