Lately, cellphones have been getting people in trouble for using one behind the wheel. A university student in California, however, used one to help get off a speeding ticket.
Here’s what happened: Sahas Katta says he was on his way home from a friend’s place when he got pulled over for going over 40 mp/h in a zone where the limit was 25 mp/h.
Instead of paying the fine and dealing with all the fun stuff that comes with a speeding ticket (higher insurance, etc.), Katta decided to fight it in court – and to represent himself – with the help of his Motorola Milestone.
