CASE LAW - R v Cool

BC Courts Coat of ArmsEmperatriz Cool was stopped in Richmond, B.C. for the offence of using an electronic device while driving. Cst. Schmidt had obtained her driver's licence after speaking with her and then issued a violation ticket. She disputed the ticket, making a no evidence motion at the close of Crown's case. She suggested that Cst. Schmidt had failed to properly identify her as the driver.

The traffic court justice disagreed and confirmed the violation ticket.

Ms. Cool appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court. Madam Justice Iyer referenced two cases, R v Nicholson and R v Coric before dismissing the appeal.
