HALIFAX, N.S. — A ban on using handheld cell phones while driving will kick in Apr. 1 in Nova Scotia and RCMP there say they’re ready to enforce the new law.

Nova Scotia RCMP told the Canadian Press drivers should already be preparing for the new law by ceasing their use of handheld cell phones while driving. The law was passed last December.

Drivers caught gabbing on their cell phones while behind the wheel will face a fine of $164.50 for a first offence and $222 for a second violation. Subsequent offences beyond that will net drivers a fine of $337.
