As you are all aware, penalties have significantly increased for distracted driving. If you are convicted of distracted driving including texting behind the wheel your license may be suspended for three days. First time fines now range from between $615 to $1000 up from the previous minimum of $490. In addition to the fine and perhaps more significantly drivers will suffer a three demerit point loss for such conviction. This will undoubtedly result in increased insurance costs. Distracting driving is a major cause of motor vehicle collisions and injuries.
