Penalty for Hand-Held Devices Shifting for Commercial Vehicle Drivers

Hand-held device tickets shifting from minor to major when rating premium for a commercial vehicle

Up until now, hand-held device tickets for commercial vehicle operators have been considered minor tickets when rating insurance policies.

We have received updates from many of our commercial insurance carriers filing with the Financial Services Commissioner of Ontario (FSCO) to have hand-held convictions adjusted and considered major infractions.

We do not have an exact date this will be approved by FSCO, but certain commercial insurance carriers will start receiving approval later this year and early into next year.

If you are operating your own commercial vehicle or have a driving force, it is important to stop utilizing your hand-held device while driving now. It will save you money and, more importantly, it may just save your life.
