DOES AYLMER HAVE  CELL PHONE/DRIVING PROBLEMS?

(Note- Starting Monday, Ontario will ban the use of handheld wireless devices while driving. Deputy Police Chief Andre Reymer provided the following info)

DCell phones are an issue in all communities. The legislation is labelled
“Distracted Driving” with a focus on electronic handheld devices. People do
a number of distracted actions like eating, shaving,& reading. Accidents in
the past where people admit driving while or were caught on the phone were charged with careless driving. The new distracted driving law can be enforced using a summons
compelling the accused to court. The only reason it’s not being “enforced”
with a standard ticket is that the set fine structure has not been
established yet ($105 is the usual). The province “requests” we stop &
educate. In serious offences we will look at charging with either the new
law or resort back to careless driving ($300 & 6 points).

    Aylmer has no more or no less of a driving while using a cell phone problem than anywhere else. The national average is just that. What some do not realize is that being caught using a device while driving is not difficult to prove if one decides to go to court on the issue. Every cell call is electronically recorded by the service provider. Your phone also holds this information until you erase it from the device. It will be difficult to deny the use of the phone at the time alleged by the police because they can subpoena the usage record from the provider or just seize your phone as evidence and present it in court. Think about this, and why spend money on a denial of guilt if you are caught. Drive carefully.
