Handheld Communication Device Ticket

Using a handheld device while driving is a serious offense in Ontario, and it’s important to avoid doing so to ensure the safety of yourself and other drivers on the road. If you must use your phone or another electronic device while driving, it’s important to pull over to a safe location before doing so.


What is Distracted Driving?

Ontario’s distracted driving laws apply to the use of hand-held communication/entertainment devices and certain display screens.

While you are driving, including when you are stopped in traffic or at a red light, it is illegal to:

  • use a phone or other hand-held wireless communication device to text or dial – you can only touch a device to call 911 in an emergency
  • use a hand-held electronic entertainment device, such as a tablet or portable gaming console
  • view display screens unrelated to driving, such as watching a video program a GPS device, except by voice commands

Other actions such as eating, drinking, grooming, smoking, reading and reaching for objects are not part of Ontario’s distracted driving law. However, you can still be charged with careless or dangerous driving.

Novice Drivers

Novice or new drivers in Ontario who hold a G1, G2, M1, or M2 license and are convicted of distracted driving will face longer suspensions instead of demerit points. The penalties for novice drivers convicted of distracted driving are as follows:

  • A 30-day license suspension for a first conviction
  • A 90-day license suspension for a second conviction
  • Cancellation of your license and removal from the Graduated Licensing System (GLS) for a third conviction
  • To get your license back, you would have to redo the GLS program

It’s important for all drivers, including novice drivers, to avoid distracted driving to ensure the safety of everyone on the road. Distracted driving is a serious offense in Ontario, and it’s important to focus on driving and avoid any distractions, such as texting, eating, or using electronic devices while behind the wheel.

I shopped around with a few known Traffic Ticket Paralegals and chose POINTTS™ Traffic Tickets because they listened to me and gave me clear options. There were no false promises and nor did they give me any hopes. I want to thank them for getting my charges dismissed and saving my demerits. I will recommend POINTTS™ to anyone who has received a Traffic Ticket and wants to fight it.

Hi Folks, I can’t thank you enough for you assistance in this matter. I am retired and have a great part time job driving customers to and from the dealership.

The process off signing up and paying for the service were flawless online.
Thanks Again for everything.

I called POINTTS™ and spoke with one representative and she was wonderful. They are very helpful, honest and are efficient with their communications. The representative that I had really did get me the best outcome possible given my situation. I would definitely choose them over X-Copper. That amazing!! 10 stars out of 5! Thank you so much. Hopefully won’t need your services in the future, but if I do there will be no hesitation.
