So, you’ve got a cellphone ticket?
Ticketbust can help you dismiss it.


Sometimes you just cannot ignore a phone call. It’s important and if you don’t get it now, something bad will happen.

You were planning on pulling over to a safe place as soon as you could, but the call came now, and there’s nothing you could do about.

The police officer was driving by and was able to see through the windows of your car that you had picked up cell phone and were not using a hands free headset. It was a prime opportunity for him to give you a ticket, and add to his daily quota. He honestly could have just given you a warning this time.

You weren’t doing anything terribly wrong, you were making sure to drive safe. Unfortunately, he didn’t understand and wrote you a really expensive anyway.

Traffic tickets should be for people who are driving recklessly and who are actively not following the rules. Normal people make small mistakes here and there, but you are a good and safe driver.

So now that you’ve been handed this unfair ticket. What are your options?

Well, first of all, you can just go with it, and pay your hard earned money for a ticket you don’t really deserve.


You can try to challenge your ticket with a very simple process available in the court systems of California. It’s called Trial by Declaration and can help you beat your cell phone ticket without you ever appearing in court or getting a lawyer involved.
