Ban on the use of cellphones while Driving

Hello Friends Ontario is going to be more safe in respect to driving, by implimenting new bill 118. I think it is a welcome step. now we all need to be careful and quit the habit of using cell phone while driving.
A controversial ban on the use of cellphones, and other handheld electronic devices while driving takes effect Monday 26th of October 2009 across the province.

Ontario is banking on Bill 118 to dissuade motorists from picking up their mobile devices to talk, dial, text, email or surf the web.

Starting February 1, after a three-month “education period,” those who ignore the rules could be fined as much as $500. But police can still lay charges during the transition period by way of a summons, if warranted. In other words, drivers would find out the amount of the fine in court.

Although motorists won’t receive any demerit points under the new law, they could be handed six demerit points if they are charged with the additional offence of careless driving. The latter also carries the possibility of further fines, driver's licence suspension and even jail time.

Drivers are also prohibited from using portable video games and DVD players but they can use their cellphones for 911 calls as well as GPS devices attached to the dashboard.  Info: as per (CP24 News).
