“Most drivers will assure you that they know to never drive distracted, but some numbers recently released by the city indicate that distracted driving is still a big problem.
In 2019, Peel Regional Police issued a total of 1,140 distracted driving tickets, 500 of which were in Mississauga, according to the city.
“Far too many drivers continue to be distracted on Mississauga roads,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “It only takes seconds to cause a life-altering crash that can impact you, your passenger and others on the road. Whether you’re setting a GPS route or talking and texting, using your phone while driving just isn’t worth it.”
For that reason, the city has rolled out a campaign to remind residents about the dangers of distracted driving, as well as the nasty fines that await if you get caught.
For a first-time distracted driving offense, the penalty is a fine between $615 and $1,000, three demerit points, and a three-day license suspension.”
