New for 2019: Tougher Distracted Driving Penalties

January 3, 2019

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.
