No one likes a distracted driver
Don’t be that person replying to texts, juggling a sandwich and beverage while steering, or trying to entertain children while driving.
Being distracted while driving, even just for two seconds, is all it takes to cause a fatal crash.
Put down your phone
Distracted driving is anything that diverts your attention from the road, but the most dangerous (and preventable) behaviour is using a hand-held electronic device while behind the wheel.
Just the facts
On average, one in three deaths on Manitoba roads involves a distracted driver.
Protect your friends and family – give distracted driving a thumbs down
If you’re a passenger and your driver is talking, texting or scrolling on their phone, give them a big ole thumbs down and ask them to put their phone away. You’ll be saving them from a hefty $672 fine and possible suspension – and you’ll also greatly reduce your risk of being in a crash.
Suspension and fines
In Manitoba, it is illegal to use a hand-held electronic device while driving. Drivers caught violating this law can receive significant suspensions and fines.
