If you’ve been charged with using a cell phone in the car, it’s important to note that the violation penalties have changed very recently. For a first offense of using that cell phone not hands-free, you are facing a penalty of between two and four hundred dollars. For a second offense, you are facing a penalty between four and six hundred dollars, and for a third offense you are facing a penalty of between six and eight hundred dollars, but more importantly, your license can be suspended for up to 90 days, and it is a three-point ticket if it is your third or more violation, so it is important that if you are charged with this offense to contact an attorney to help represent you.
