As of January 2016, Alberta Distracted Drivers Will be Receiving 3 Demerit Points

25,913. That is how many Albertans were handed distracted driving tickets in 2014, which equated to zero demerit points.

Starting the very first day of 2016, all Albertans will be handed 3 demerit points for distracted driving on our roads. This means holding a handheld device, using your GPS, viewing a cell phone or electronic device, viewing printed material, and grooming or any other hygiene related distractions.

Drive safe out there, fellow Edmontonians. It blows my mind that nearly 26k people have been caught driving whilst distracted.

    Wait, you can’t use your GPS? Does that include mounting it onto your windshield? I can’t get around without my GPS .
