Under Ontario Legislature: We thought it would be a good reminder to let you know what the consequences are when caught driving and texting in Ontario. Distracted driving is the use of electronic hand-held devices, while operating a motor vehicle and includes; dialling, texting, typing, emailing or chatting using a hand-held device. All of those are illegal in Ontario and if you are caught you will be fined. In Ontario the fine is $155, which is supposed to serve as the main deterrent for individuals using hand held devices while driving. However, the focus should be on the greater issue. That is that several lives are in danger when you are a distracted driver, as tragic yet avoidable accidents can happen when being a distracted driver, view our blog post on distracted drivers; Please put away your hand held device and concentrate all your attention on being an alert and defensive driver.
