New Ruling on Using GPS of Phone while Driving!

Here it is!  The People v. Spriggs Opinion that was recently decided and certified for publication that driver's could not be cited for using their cell phone while driving if they were using their GPS function.

The Fifth District Court of Appeal concluded that the Legislature never intended the law to cover looking at a cellphone map, reversing Mr. Spriggs' conviction.  While this ruling may seem limited at first glance, it can be used as persuasive authority when cited for an alleged violation of Vehicle Code Sec. 23123(a).

  2. Unfortunately, there are some people in the legal profession who have had difficulty following the rules of professional conduct. Make sure that the DUI attorney Los Angeles has never been disciplined by the ethics board governing their state's attorneys.
