Not really. Who doesn't have screw driver in the car anyway. :-) 

 

It says that you can defend yourself by proving the following

 

Defenses

If you can prove

  1. you didn't intend to use the tools to commit a crime,
  2. the tools weren't the type prohibited by Penal Code 466 PC, and/or
  3. the police discovered the tools during an illegal search / seizure

        you should be acquitted of this offense.

Anything can be actually  be used as a burglary tool but as long as you remember those 3 important things, you can avoid trouble.
