  • What you need to know about Ontario's new road rules

    Ontario drivers will face some changes on the road starting Sept. 1, including stiffer penalties for distracted driving and new rules to protect cyclists and tow truck drivers.

    "Since 2009, more than 500 people have died in collisions in OPP-controlled roads, in which driver inattention was a causal factor," said OPP Sgt. Dave Rektor. "Statistically speaking, distracted driving has exceeded impaired driving as a causal factor in fatal collisions."

    Rektor said it's not just texting or checking a phone while driving that counts as distracted driving, but also anything that takes a driver's eyes off the road.
