Ontario’s new Distracted Driving Law goes into effect today. The new law makes it illegal for drivers to use hand held cellphones or other electronic devices while at the wheel. Vicki and I talked about it on the show this morning and our online poll shows that the majority of our listeners will pull over to the side of the road to use their cellphone. Some of the people I talked to on the weekend wondered why cellphones are being targeted when other activities like eating while driving, applying make-up while at the wheel and holding a dog on your lap while on the road can be equally distracting. We also had a few calls from listeners with questions about what the law covers. Click on this link if you would like to find out more about the new law. As for me, I’ll pull over to make a call until I pick up a handsfree device later this week.
