Public Consultation on Cell Phone Ban

The provincial government is seeking British Columbians’ input on the use of cell phones and other electronic devices while driving.

The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) recently conducted an extensive review of distracted driving research. Part of that review looked at how other jurisdictions have responded to this
issue.

The OSMV discussion paper "Addressing the Problem of Distracted Driving and its Impacts to Road Safety" and a short list of questions that interested individuals may respond to are posted at:
www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/legislation/current.htm

Individuals may also contact the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles in writing or by phone for a copy of the discussion paper and questions.
