FIGHT YOUR TRAFFIC TICKET?
Distracted Driving Campaign
Toronto police will be cracking down on the big 4 driver behaviours known to put pedestrians at risk, in a week-long zero-tolerance traffic enforcement blitz over March Break.
Beginning on Monday, officers will be hitting the streets looking for speeding motorists, distracted and impaired drivers and/or motorists driving aggressively all behaviours Toronto police deem the main factors behind collisions.
In a release Monday, police said they are launching the blitz with vulnerable road users in mind, after 41 pedestrians were killed in collisions with a vehicle in 2018.
The number of points added to your driving record depends on the offence. Here are the number of points that will be recorded for certain violations.
As part of the campaign, police said they will also be actively engaging with the community by relying on social media and their media partners to help share and deliver information about the campaign.
The safety blitz and community engagement campaign begins March 11 and ends on March 17.
What exactly is the distracted driving law?
In Ontario, it’s against the law to:
- operate hand-held communication and electronic entertainment devices while you’re driving
- view display screens unrelated to your driving
Examples of hand-held devices include:
- iPods and MP3 players
- cell phones
- smart phones
- DVD players
Can I use my hand-held device when I'm stopped at a stop light?
No. With the exception of a call to the police, fire department or emergency medical services personnel, a driver of a motor vehicle must be pulled off the roadway and not impeding traffic, or lawfully parked to use these hand-held devices.
