Phones should be mounted and not in cup holders, B.C.’s public safety minister says

Excerpt: “Josh Delgado was given his ticket on Sept. 23 in Saanich while he says he was stopped at a red light.

Delgado told Global News the phone was face down, plugged into a USB charger and connected to his work van’s stereo via Bluetooth as his employer requires — but the officer issued the $368 fine anyways.

Delgado said he was particularly frustrated because the phone was hooked up properly through the Bluetooth system, so any calls or texts would come through the vehicle’s speakers.”
