  • Hold or operate hand-held communication devices (for instance a cell or mobile phone or a walkie-talkie) without hands free kits and headsets that enable its use without a hand or part of the body holding it. See Communication Devices for more detail.
  • Drive or sit in the driver's seat when the engine is running if the driver is under the influence of narcotic drugs or the alcohol in the blood exceeds the permissible level. The person in the driver's seat should always be in full control of the vehicle. It is an offence to refuse a blood or a breath specimen. The maximum permitted concentration of alcohol in the blood is less than 0.05 grams per 100 millilitre of blood (0.02 grams for professional drivers) and 0.24 milligrams per 1,000 millilitre of breath (0.10 milligrams for professional drivers). See Alcohol & Drugs for more detail.
  • Don't play music in your car so loudly that you can't hear the sounds your car is making, emergency sirens or the sound of warning bells or trains when you're coming up to a railway level crossing.
  • Children and pets can be noisy or need your help when you are driving. If you have to deal with the needs of children or pets, pull over to the side of the road and park your vehicle first.
