—The new maximum fine for distracted driving, under a proposed law expected to be introduced at Queen’s Park sometime after October 20, according to the Star. (Offenders would also get demerit points.) This is the provincial government’s second attempt at introducing these changes, after a first try stalled in the legislature earlier this year. Current fines for texting at the wheel go as high as $500.
