MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — In the wake of Ontario’s recent hand-held devices ban, Shaw Tracking is reminding clients that its full suite of products comply with the new Ontario Distracted Driver Law.
Since Feb. 1, Ontario drivers have been subject to new laws restricting the use of cell phones, PDAs and other communication devices to hands-free use. Shaw Tracking officials have noted that many of the company’s technology features already include built-in capabilities to ensure the driver’s safety, such as text-to-speech accessibility; one-touch, securable remote control devices; and screen blanking of mounted displays when vehicle is in motion.
“Shaw strongly supports the Ontario Distracted Driving Law to support highway safety,” said Peter Bissonnette, president of Shaw Communications. “Shaw Tracking is the only company in the transportation industry providing fleet management solutions that are fully compliant with new and proposed driving legislation across Canada.”
