The Nova Scotia government is reminding motorists that it will soon increase fines for drivers who use hand-held electronic devices behind the wheel while also taking demerit points from their licences.
Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan says distracted driving is as serious as impaired driving and the bigger fines and loss of demerit points is aimed at influencing the behaviour of drivers.
