WINNIPEG, Man. – Manitoba is the latest jurisdiction to mull banning cell phone use while driving.
Transport Minister Ron Lemieux said the province is examining the experiences of other regions that have imposed cell phone bans.
He also said the province is looking into whether or not a ban would reduce accidents and also how the rule could be enforced.
He also said the province is considering both a full ban on cell phones while driving, or a partial ban which would allow drivers to use hands-free products.
