Most Ontario drivers are now well aware of the fact that it is illegal to use hand-held devices will driving. Since October 26, 2009, this new law has been in force. The “cell phone while driving ban” was introduced through Bill 118, which amended Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act. The amendment prohibits drivers from using hand-held wireless communication devices (such as cell phones and Blackberries) and hand-held entertainment devices (such as iPods or PlayStation Portables) while driving. The amendment also prohibits display screens in vehicles, such as DVD or MP3 players and laptop computers, but only if they are visible to the driver and are unrelated to the driving task.
