Section IA — Case Overview
Why should this case win in the category (ies) you have entered?
Ontario has a distracted driving problem. Stories of collisions and death appear constantly on the news and many of us have had a near-miss with a driver who was staring at their phone. The stigma of driving intoxicated has been well-established after years of public messaging, but Ontarians, especially young Ontarians, still drive today while using their phone with regularity. It's a great public danger not just for drivers, but for all of those who share the roads.
