CAA says, Red light texting remains a problem.




In a recent poll conducted by Canadian Automobile Association,its found that around 33% of Canadians still continue to text and drive at red lights despite tough financial penalties and loss of demerit points.
Jeff Walker, the vice-president of public affairs at the CAA says that the effect of texting at a red light lingers well after the light turns green, making it a dangerous driving habit.
The CAA polled 2,012 Canadians for its survey. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
The survey also suggests that nearly 70 per cent of Canadians believe using their phone at a red light is unacceptable.
