SMP Law’s First Video Post! Have You Heard About the New Distracted Driving Laws?

As of January 1, 2019, Ontario has instituted new Distracted Driving Laws and you will want to be familiar with them.  The range of what constitutes distracted driving is broader and the consequences are more severe.  The Official Government of Ontario website outlines what constitutes distracted driving and what the penalties are depending on your type of licence so have a look and get informed.

Some interesting activities that constitute distracted driving include: putting on makeup and eating or typing an address into a GPS device.  And it does not matter if you are at a red light stopped.  So make sure you know the new laws and consequences.

Drive Safe!
