Not to much of a shock here… the B.C. government has said they will pass a law that will limit the use of cellphones while driving. Solicitor General Kash Heed they want “to create a safer driving and pedestrian environmental for all.”
When this becomes official, this B.C. cellphone ban will join 4 other provinces that have the law in effect: Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Manitoba and Prince Edward Island are also considering passing the same law. Heed said there are 3 upcoming changes while driving:
-Limit cellphone use to hands-free operations;
-Ban text messaging;
-Prohibit the use of cellphones and other devices (even hands-free mode) for new drivers under the graduated licensing program.
