Despite a new CAMH study reporting around 50 per cent of grade 12 students admit to texting and driving, the province doesn't plan on making penalties stiffer for younger drivers compared to adults when they make changes to the distracted driving laws.
Premier Kathleen Wynne vows to bring back the distracted driving legislation which was killed when the election campaign started.
It would see three demerit points attached to distracted driving and raise the maximum fine from $280 to $1,000.
Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca says they don't have any plans to make penalties even stiffer for younger drivers.
The province won't say when the legislation will be re-introduced.
