Ontario cracking down on distracted driving

The Province of Ontario is slated to introduce new legislation this fall that, if passed, would create tough new rules and penalties for careless and distracted driving.

The proposed measures include:
  • A new offence for careless driving causing death or bodily harm with penalties that include fines, licence suspension and imprisonment
  • Tougher penalties for distracted driving, such as using a cellphone while operating a vehicle, including higher fines, more demerit points, and license suspensions
  • Increased penalties for drivers who fail to yield for pedestrians and escalating fines for drivers who are convicted of multiple pedestrian-related offences within a five-year window
  • Expanding the use of rear flashing blue lights for enforcement and emergency vehicles.
In addition, the province is consulting on the use of cameras on school buses that capture the offence of illegally passing a school bus, so that this evidence can be admitted into court without a witness.
