Cellphone and texting while driving

Cellulaire ou texto au volant Solution Ticket

How to contest a ticket for cellular phone

(Article 443.1 of the Highway Safety Code)

Cellphone while driving since June 30, 2018

What does the law say about cell phones while driving?

According to the Highway Safety Code, it is forbidden to carry a device with a phone function, in other words a cellphone, while driving. It should be noted that it is not only talking on the phone that is prohibited by law, but also having the phone in your hands. Therefore, simply moving the phone may result in a ticket.

However, a person who legally and safely stops his or her vehicle at the side of the road to use a cell phone is no longer driving, even if the vehicle engine is still running, and therefore should not receive a ticket.

The number of demerit points is 5.

Note: no driver of a road vehicle or cyclist riding on the roadway shall use or LOOK at a cellular phone or any other hand-held device designed to transmit or receive information or to be used for entertainment purposes, or use a display screen.

The range of fines for the driver of a road vehicle for this type of offence is now $300 to $600.

For repeat offences, the minimum fine is doubled.

The driver is also subject to an immediate licence suspension of 3, 7 or 30 days for the first, second or third and subsequent offences within a two-year period.

Remember that the simple act of LOOKING at a cell phone or screen placed so that the driver of a road vehicle can see the image transmitted on the screen, directly or indirectly, is sufficient for a ticket to be issued.

Only tickets issued prior to the coming into force of the change will be subject to a four demerit point penalty.

However, truckers should note that it is possible for them to have in their possession a walkie-talkie or “CB” radio that does not have a telephone function and to use it while driving.

What should I do if I get a cell phone ticket while driving?

Depending on the circumstances and well represented, the fine and demerit points could be reduced. Let Solution Ticket verify whether or not the infraction you are accused of is valid or not.

Heavy vehicle driver:

Be vigilant and avoid being double penalized! Did you know that the same offense could result an accumulation of demerit points and PEVL and CVL points? For example, the driver who is found guilty of using a cell phone or portable device Article 443.1 Code de la sécurité routière du Quebec is imposed demerit points on his personal driving record and PEVL or CVL points on his heavy vehicle record.

It is also important to be aware that an infraction that does not involve any ‘regular’ demerit point can result in different consequences for drivers of heavy vehicles. In addition, an infraction for a yellow light does not include demerit point, but results in 3 demerit points  PEVL or CVL  in your file related to heavy vehicles.
