The police pulled me over for 'talking' on the phone while driving. They checked my drivers licence, all clean. They then checked my phone record, including Facebook (as it is the only social media I have), with my permission of course. There were no outward messages and no inward or outward phone calls at least within the last 20 minutes of them pulling me over; in fact, I hadn't been on my phone for over an hour. They spent about 5-10 minutes looking through my phone, trying to find something that was not there. I was obviously in no fault of my own. After this, they gave me an ultimatum, to admit to the offence and be issued with a caution; or to not admit, and be issued with a fine risking losing my license (as I am only on my provisional license). An unethical ultimatum from what is suppose to be a respectable person, has really struck me hard. Upon request of this ultimatum, I stated that I genuinely wasn't on my phone, but I will admit to doing something I did not do, given that I won't receive a fine which I cannot afford. They said, "well, what do you want me to put down?" I am a uni student, which was evident by my provisional licence, a university parking sticker on the front of my car, and the fact I was right outside the university I attend. Given that I am poor, I clearly had to admit to something I did not do. I can not afford a fine, and they must have known that I couldn't afford a fine. Now I have a criminal record, for something I did not commit. Facts: - I was not talking on my phone - There is not and will never be a record of a phone call on on my phone or from service provider, nor will there be any social media calls taken during this time; for the above reason. - I am right handed and my phone was in my left pocket - I was wearing a black jacket ; coincidentally the same colour as my phone - My car is an old 1989 car, clearly I am not wealthy Do I have any legal standing to overturn the caution under traffic law? Is the ultimatum legal? Is the ultimatum discriminating against the obviously less well off? If there is no hard evidence, can they legally charge me or caution me beyond reasonable doubt?
