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).
