VIDEO: CTV NEWS Edmonton: Final warning for distracted Alberta drivers
Alberta’s residents have less than a week left to get prepared for the new Distracted Driving law that comes into effect September 1, 2011. Media releases state that Alberta sheriffs and RCMP officers will not be wasting any time enforcing this new law. Offenders will be ticketed. Warnings will not be given out.
According to RCMP officials, this new law is still in effect when your vehicle is stopped. For example, firing out a quick text or inputting info into your GPS, at a red light, is considered unlawful under the new law and if caught, you will be ticketed.
Exceptions to the new law include calling 911, eating, drinking or smoking in your vehicle while driving.
