CTV Winnipeg has revealed that even though legislation banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driving passed last June, it still hasn’t been made into a law.
Until it is made into a law, the rule can’t be enforced and tickets/fines can’t be issued by the police.
The government is finalizing the plans to put the law into legislation and it should start being enforced soon.
Once in legislation, drivers caught breaking the rule will be fined approximately $190.
Until then… don’t be stupid! If you want to endanger your own life, then take on rock climbing or something. But DON’T put other lives at risk for your negligence as a driver. Use a hands free device. Make a hands free call instead of reading/writing a text message.
