If you are driving and have a cellphone in your hand, Ontario’s
top court says you’re breaking the law.
In two decisions released yesterday, the Court of Appeal for

In one case, a woman argued she`d just picked up her cellphone
after it fell on the floor of her car when a police officer spotted
her holding it.
In the other case, a man caught driving with a cellphone in his
hand argued the Crown couldn’t prove it was capable of sending or
receiving at the time.
