The 5th District Court of Appeal, today, tossed out the conviction of Steven Spriggs, who was given a ticket for using the map feature on his cell phone. The Court concluded that the vehicle code applies to listening and talking on a cell phone while driving-not looking at a map app. This decision over-rules Fresno Traffic Court Commissioner Jeff Bird and a three-judge appellate panel of the Fresno Superior Court, who upheld the original traffic court decision. The original decision found that Spriggs violated the cell phone law by using the map app. This decision found that the court cannot expand the law against texting or talking by including using the map app.
