Tldr: read last paragraph I was driving down a main road and ended up stopping at a set of lights a police response vehicle ended up doing a U-turn and following me down the road they stopped at sort of the end of my car I had a dash cam in my hands looking at a video of a guy doing a burnout I had recorded 5 minutes earlier, I immediately turned around to see who and why the vehicle was sitting back because I had been pulled over 5 times in the previous week and noticed it was one of the police response vehicles I had already put the dash cam away, once the lights turned green I pulled over into a service lane before they had even put their lights on, the officer's questioned me on what I was using and I explained it was my headunit changing colours, which it does. to which they asked does the face provide light when removed from the actual unit to which I replied no, they questioned me about using a mobile phone and eventually wrote up a fine for using a mobile phone along with defecting me because my handbrake clicked too many times because they said I was lieing about not using a mobile phone, My phone at the time was at home at the time and in their description ( as I have taken the matter to court) "The police traveling in the right lane have pulled up beside the accused in his blind spot. officer's having a clear unobstructed view into the vehicle have observered the accused to be holding a mobile phone in his left hand horizontally in front of his face" Which is a false statement due to the fact my headrest is quite large and the phone was on the left side of me which would block the line of sight, I have tested this myself with a friend to ensure I was correct. His statement of the events is also horrifically incorrect, with him detailing that he spoke 5 times and I replied 5 times, which is far from true as he questioned me quite extensively on the subject and if there was anything else in the car that could look like a mobile phone, I wasn't certain and I am not certain that if using a dash cam while stopped at the lights for 30 or so seconds is an offence. So im wondering if using a dash cam to view a video is an offence, which offence it is, if because Ive been charged with using a mobile phone instead of a dash cam I can still be charged. If I can ask for leniency due to police harassment as I was pulled over 6 times in a week and didn't wish to fully co-operate with the officer along with the fact he defected me for a trivial matter when I didn't agree with him that he saw a mobile phone.
