Using a GPS, looking at a smart watch, and even eating are also affected.

Ontario’s new driving laws will officially take affect on January 1, 2019. The severity of punishments increase will increase with the number of offences committed.

  • 1. The first offence will mean a three day suspension and a $1,000 fine (the current fine is set at $490).
  • 2. The second offence will mean a seven day suspension and a $2,000 fine.
  • 3. Three or more offences will lead to a thirty day suspension, a $3,000 fine, and six demerit points.

With the new rules in the place, distracted driving could cost you even if you're on a hightway or stopped.
