Keeping Phones on the Street

On Dec 1, a Notice of a Motion was presented by Ward 11 York-South Weston Councillor Nunziata, for Toronto City Councillors to endorse Provincial bill 118, prohibiting the use of devices with display screens and hand-held communication and entertainment devices while driving.  It’s good to see the dialogue between Municipal and Provincial, especially on such a no-brainer.  Recent studies have shown that even driving while using hands-free devices is unsafe.  Think about it: someone sitting beside you can help you anticipate possible hazards, and can stop the conversation when they see you need to concentrate.  Hooray for Councillor Nunziata and feel free to pass on the news that you don’t need a law to drive safely.
