Q: Cellphone while driving citation in Portland Oregon
Hello I got a cellphone usage citation today with a 270 dollar fine, I was curious if this goes into your driving record and what should I do,I have never had another ticket before, should I pay fine or appeal thankyou all
A: You can contact a traffic ticket attorney or the PD and ask if this is a point count ticket, if no, it is not on your record as a point. It always goes on your record. You should also call your insurance company to find out if they will raise your rates for such a ticket, and how much. Then you can make an educated decision about fighting the ticket. I recommend you contact several attorneys in your area that practice this type of law, as soon as possible. Thank you for using Justia ask a lawyer. Oh, traffic school might keep it off your record but only if you don't want a point count or if your Ins is going up.
