Alberta Transportation Minister Ric McIver Eyes Demerits For Those Flouting Alberta's Distracted Driving Law

CP

Alberta will toughen penalties for distracted driving in the face of widespread flouting of the two-year-old legislation, Alberta Transportation Minister Ric McIver said Monday.

Including demerits along with the existing fine that now sits at $172 for using cellphones or other distractions while behind the wheel will be considered, said McIver.
