Phone and driving ontario
Just saw the bus driver use the wired ttc phone while driving. Is it allowed??? If it is allowed, can we use our cell phone that has wired handle while driving??

Its like a normal wired telephone..... It was requesting for another bus due to customer not showing proof of payment again.

The only difference with the phone is that only the driver can hear the information the dispatcher is providing. i.e. if they are calling requesting police or listening to sensitive information.

Specified commercial, public transit, and public function drivers, as well as licenced amateur radio operators, are permitted hand-held use of their two-way (“CB”) radios (exemption to expire January 1, 2018).
