Even though this law has been in effect for 3 years, I still see a ton of people talking and texting every day. It's got to be the easiest ticket to write for LE. I see at least 10 people on my 15 minute commute to work every morning, and I'm not even looking for them.
Honestly, I think they should make it a $1,000.00 fine. Not only is it dangerous but I always end up behind some a**hole texting when the light goes green. They don't move until you honk, only to have them they flip you the bird. WTF?
I'm moving to Ontario in summer, with my 2002.
When this law came out in Alberta, I said the same thing $1000!
Here it is like $174 and no points. A joke. Easy to enforce, but not cheap, this one requires police on the roads. not just a camera.
And I don't understand that, they are breaking the law, and you're the one getting the finger. I find we're more distracted here than in ontario, as least from the trips i've taken the last few years.
