TORONTO — Don’t hang up that phone just yet.
Legislation banning the use of handheld electronics while driving is expected to come into effect this fall, but the province has not yet set a date.
Toronto Police Sgt. Tim Burrows said the force has been told the law could kick in between late October and late November.
When the new restrictions are in place, drivers who text, type, e-mail, dial or chat using a handheld device will face a fine of $60 to a maximum of $500 upon conviction. Hands-free devices will still be okay.
