Fighting Your Stamford & Greenwich Connecticut Cell Phone Tickets

Come every April, Stamford, Greenwich and Darien Connecticut police ramp up their distracted driving awareness campaigns. Cell phone ticket sting operations are set up all around these towns—especially during rush hour. Inevitably, hundreds of Connecticut drivers are ticketed for cell phone violations and distracted driving under CGS 14-296aa.

What Do I Say When Police Ask “Do You Know Why I Pulled You Over”?

Make sure you do not admit using your cell phone to the police. While it’s against the law to lie to the police, you do not have to admit to violating the law. Anything you say that incriminates you can and will be documented in your police report, and later used against you in court.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Fight My Stamford or Greenwich Cell Phone Ticket? 

Yes. Many of the top criminal cell phone ticket lawyers in Stamford and Greenwich Connecticut are aware of last year’s “Dunbar” court decision handed down by the Connecticut Supreme Court. There, the court held that merely having a cell phone in your hand is not enough to support a conviction for Distracted Driving under CGS 14-296aa. The phone must be held to your ear.

Should I Plead Guilty by Mail to My Connecticut Cell Phone Ticket?

Yes, unless the police gave you a break and did not charge you with other violations or crimes. (In that case, once your not guilty plea gets to the courthouse, the prosecutors have the discretion to add charges, even criminal misdemeanor charges, such as reckless driving). That’s why it makes sense to speak to any of the best Connecticut traffic ticket attorneys / law firms prior to sending in your Connecticut cell phone ticket with a not guilty plea by mail.

I Pled Guilty by Mail to My Connecticut Cell Phone Ticket & Got Suspended – Can I Reverse My Guilty Plea?

Yes, under certain circumstances. Too often teenage drivers in Connecticut don’t want to tell their parents and just plead guilty by mail and pay the small fine. Little do they realize that the guilty plea can get their Connecticut driver’s license suspended, and trigger a substantial increase in their auto insurance rates. This is where it make sense to hire a top Connecticut traffic court lawyer attorney to get your Connecticut cell phone ticket guilty plea reversed and ripped up.
