Submission + - No hand held devices in Ontario cars. (

NIK282000 writes: In Ontario it is now a ticket-able offense to text, email or try to navigate with your GPS to cut down on accidents caused by drivers who aren't paying attention. But it seems to me that they have thrown the baby out with the bath water because it is now also a $500 fine to change your radio station, change songs on your MP3 player or even drink your morning coffee. It can also be enforced to the point where changing the climate controls on your dash can get you fined because it requires you to take your hands off the wheel. Though this was a good idea it seems to have been taken a little to far.
