Don't Get Caught Talking!
On the first of April 2008, Quebec will join many other cities in North America that ban the use of using a hand held cell phone while driving. Any driver caught using a hand held cell phone will be slapped with a $100 fine, similar to a person being caught without a seat belt. Hand free devices are legal and will not pose any problem whatsoever. The amount of accidents that have occurred whilst people were speaking on hand held devices have resulted on this ban coming about. Although this does not solve all accidents as speaking on a hands free device still distracts a driver, accidents may still occur. Let's hope this reduces the risks substantially.
