The B.C. government wants to toughen up distracted driving rules, but don’t expect penalties to rise just yet.
Attorney General Suzanne Anton says the province is launching a public consultation process.
“Over the next four weeks, we want to hear from British Columbians. Tell us, are our distracted driving laws tough enough.”
Earlier this month Ontario approved fines up to a thousand dollars for being distracted behind the wheel.
Anton has previously said that penalty would be too steep.
Do you think a $167 fine and three penalty points is enough to deter someone from driving distracted?
