This doesn’t just apply to those who drive with a cellphone in hand, but also those who watch DVDs, program their GPS, and operate hand held audio players.

The three demerit points will be added to the $167 fine, and anyone receiving more than one distracted ticket automatically gets nailed with a $634 fine.

There are also provisions to have repeat offenders flagged as “high risk” and monitored under the Driver Improvement Program.
