Cornwall police focusing on cell phone ban
Throughout the month of February, Cornwall police will be conducting targeted enforcement of the cell phone ban for drivers.

Cornwall - Feb. 2, 2011 - Local motorists, be warned.

As part of its Traffic Action Plan for the month of February, Cornwall police will be focusing on distracted drivers and keeping an eye out for those who aren't abiding by the cell phone and telecommunication device ban.

It is now illegal in Ontario for drivers to use any electronic devices with display screens and hand-held communication and entertainment devices. The legislation was introduced last February to ensure the safety of all motorists in Ontario, police said.

Those found to be using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle could face a fine of $155.

Beyond that, police may lay charges for careless driving or criminal driving offences such as dangerous driving if situations warrant it.

Police are warning motorists that there will be "zero tolerance" in regards to an offence in which the public safety is of concern.
