New for 2019: Tougher Distracted Driving Penalties


The Ontario government implemented new, aggressive, and very costly increases to distracted driving penalties. This includes the "texting and driving" tickets that have seen a dramatic rise over the last year. The fine will double to $1,000.00 and include a suspension based on how many times you have been convicted previously. In addition, graduated drivers (G1/G2/M1/M2) will face very harsh suspensions as follows:

  • 30-day licence suspensions for a first conviction,

  • 90-day licence suspensions for a second conviction,

  • licence cancellations for a third conviction.
