Caught texting while driving? The fine is going up in June. Expect to pay $368 for a first time offence plus 4 demerit points which will ding you another $175 when you renew your license bringing the grand total fine to $543.
But wait! There’s more… didn’t learn your lesson, the fine escalates. Second offense within in year has a $520 ticket plus points which will cost you $888!
Third offense will be $1,600 when it’s all said and done.
Do you think this price point for the fine will be enough to help people make better and safer choices on the roads?
