SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — As part of the Distracted Driving Awareness Month campaign, Californians are being warned that they will be ticketed for talking or texting on their cellphones while driving.
Now, a court in Fresno has ruled that the law making cellphone use illegal while driving also applies to hand-held navigation devices. However, the ruling won’t apply outside of Fresno unless a higher court affirms their decision.
But phone apps with GPS and other navigational tools appear to be here to stay. What I do is I have my iPhone velcroed to my dashboard. I tested all sorts of mounting systems and devices, but found that a simple 25-cent square of Velcro and adhesive does the trick perfectly.
