'Driving a motor vehicle requires the total concentration of a driver, as life-saving decisions are often made in an instant.'—Marilyn McLaren, Manitoba Public Insurance
No smoking with kids in car
First offense, $191. 2nd, double fine and demerits. 3rd, no more licence without driver education.
Face it folks, you're just not that important. If you were, you'd have a driver and this wouldn't be an issue.
I guess we should also ban drivers from talking to their passengers as well. In fact, let's ban talking in cars altogether, it's a distraction. Hell, let's get rid of radios while we're at it since that can also be a distraction.
I agree with this new law 100%, but I don't understand how using a handsfree device is so much safer than holding the phone to your ear. Either way your distracted. Using a cellphone should be banned while driving PERIOD!
