The new laws for distracted driving are going to take place January 1st, 2019.

The fines for distracted driving would increase from a maximum of $1,000 to up to $2,000 on a second conviction and up to $3,000 for third or subsequent incidents, as well as six demerit points for multiple offences.

Offenders would also see their licence suspended for three days on a first offence, seven days after two convictions, and 30 days for third and further convictions.

Getting young people informed about the dangers of distracted driving is the first step to preventing it!
