The legislation that came into effect on October 26, 2009 created a specific offence for this driving behaviour, which is known to distract drivers from driving safely.
The law applies to hand-held wireless communications and hand-held electronic entertainment devices.
Drivers must use only wireless devices that can be used in a hands-free manner:
- a cell phone with an earpiece or headset using voice-dialling, or plugged into the vehicle's sound system
- a global positioning system (GPS) device that is properly secured to the dashboard or another accessible place in the vehicle
- a portable audio player that has been plugged into the vehicle's sound system,
9-1-1 calls for emergency assistance are not prohibited by the legislation.
This dangerous activity associated with drivers who talk, text, type, dial or email using handheld cellphones and other hand-held communications and entertainment devices continues to occur on our streets.
The Toronto Police Service will continue to educate motorists about this dangerous driving practice and enforce the law.
