:mad: well ladies and gents i'm thankful that i'm able to type this. i was just coming back from my lunch break. this lady in a suburban (oncoming) turned left in front of me. guess what, she was talking on the celly, laughing and having a good 'ol time. :cuss c'mon people what is so important that you have to talk on the phone while driving?! can you not pull over for a minute? can it not wait until you arrive at your destination? or hell, don't even answer. have you not heard of voicemail/holla at you later?! do you not understand that you are risking harming/killing others just to tell your bitch friend about how you just got your nails done? i could punch you in the fawkin face right now. UGH!!! :rant

Cellphone ban begins for Ontario drivers

CBC News

An Ontario law came into effect Monday making it illegal for drivers to use hand-held cellphones, BlackBerrys and other electronic devices while behind the wheel.

Drivers are forbidden to use hand-held devices to talk, text or email while behind the wheel, or to use portable video games or DVD players.

The only exception to the ban is a 911 call.

"This law is about keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel," Transportation Minister Jim Bradley said at a news conference in Toronto Monday. "We need to prevent these unnecessary road accidents and I believe this law will do just that."

Hands-free cellphones remain legal, and global positioning systems are allowed if they're secured to the dashboard.

The Ministry of Transport said the ban is needed because driver distraction is a factor in 20 per cent of all road accidents. Bradley said one U.S. study found texting boosted the risk of a collision 23 times.

Starting Feb. 1, drivers could face fines of up to $500 if they're caught violating the ban. There are no demerit points attached to the law.
