Mandatory Drivers License Suspensions – Handheld Device Convictions
The Ontario government has made increased penalties to all convictions for Driving With Handheld Device under s.78.1 of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.
If you are convicted for driving while using or holding a Handheld Device (cell phone) you now face a mandatory license suspension of 3-days upon a first conviction, second conviction 7-days, and third conviction for 30-days in addition of fines of minimum $500.00 to $3,000.00 (plus court costs and surcharges).
The province has made these increases to the mandatory minimum penalties as accidents related to distracted driving continues to be a leading cause to deaths on Ontario highways.
