Ontario unanimously passed legislation increasing penalties for drivers who text or use a

handheld phone while on the road, and who open their door into the path of a cyclist. The update

to the Highway Traffic Act also imposes a one-meter distance rule between motor vehicles and

bicycles — “where practicable” — and will force drivers to wait until pedestrians completely

cross the road at school crossings.

Distracted driving remains a killer on Ontario roads: OPP

Fines for distracted drivers has increase from the old range of $60 to $500 to between $300 to

$1,000, plus three demerit points.
