I agree Denise, it's only common sense...and the law where I live...
Any use of a hand-held cell phone that does not have a “hands-free” function is now prohibited while driving. Motorists were granted a three-month grace period, during which they only received a warning when arrested for this type of offence, but since July 1, 2008 they have to pay a fine of $115 (including court costs) and have three demerit points added to their driving record.
The Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec also specifies that if you absolutely must use your phone, you must do so from a safe location; i.e., a parking lot, a service area, or on the side of the road as long as the speed limit is 70 km/h or less.
Better yet: don’t use the phone at all
CAA-Quebec reminds the public that the true danger is that while driving, the mere fact of having a phone conversation is a source of distraction. It therefore urges motorists to heed the following advice:
You are better off not talking on the phone at all while driving, “hands-free” or not.
When you’re on the road, turn off your handset so that any incoming calls are forwarded to your voice mail. Or, if you have a passenger, let that person make or receive calls.
