British Columbia ban on use of hand-held devices while driving now in effect

Nokia original accessories help keep hands free and eyes on the road

TORONTO, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - British Columbia's ban on the use of hand-held communication and entertainment devices came into effect on January 1, 2010. The new law will make it illegal for drivers to text, type, dial or email using hand-held devices while operating a vehicle.

Many B.C. residents have become accustomed to talking on their mobile devices on the road, but this is now a bad habit they will have to break. There are mobile devices options and wireless accessories that offer hands-free modes and speaker commands that would allow drivers to safely use their hand-held devices without distracting them from driving.

Nokia is the leader in Bluetooth headsets with the highest market share globally.

If you'd like to speak with Richard Lee of Nokia Canada about the implications of the ban or Nokia's hands free devices, please let me know.
