Common Council Asked to Ban Cell Phones While Driving

Chatting on the phone while making your daily commute may become a thing of the past sometime in our near future, as the use of cellphones and driving may meet a province wide ban. A letter submitted to Common Council asks council to adopt a resolution to urge the Provincial government to take the appropriate steps in banning cellphones while driving.
