A judge rejected Victoria Ambrose’s testimony that, despite the multi-function of the electronic device that straps to the wrist, she was only checking the time
It seems to me that Apple should foot the bill for a competent appeal, and a challenge to this law as too broad or too vague. I don't mind this woman having to pay a CD $400 fine. She clearly was distracted But the decision here ("cellphone taped to wrist") seems to make wearable tech itself a legal risk while piloting a vehicle
If holding a phone while driving is a legal risk why can't a watch on your wrist that makes calls and text be the same? She was probably reading text or surfing the web on her wrist thinking that is was a loop hole. If you are looking at the time it should only take you less than 3 seconds. And 99% of all vehicles today have clocks so....the judge was correct.
