More than a year ago, I sent letters to the Yukon Party and the Liberals asking if they could create a law banning cellphones while driving, like in almost every other part of Canada. I got a letter back from the Yukon Party saying it wasn’t interested in making such a law. Since then, I’ve heard that they’ve changed their minds and are going to make a law.

I ride my scooter every day to work and I see a lot of people driving while using their phones. It really scares me because I have almost been hit by people not paying attention to the road.

If the government is now in favour of this idea, could it please hurry up so it’s safer for people walking and riding?

It shouldn’t take so long!
