Dear David:

I applaud the tenacity & forebearance of your Her Majesty's Government of Alberta in bringing in tough fines IV distracted driving starting September Ist, MMXI. These positive initiatives to ban things like cell phone calls, texting, reading & other distractions started with a fine rate of $172.00. This is both fair & justified, I personally think that with these new laws, folks will pay more attention to their driving in school zones. This of course will increase the safety of the students overall & thus decrease the worry of students, parents, teachers about children's ability to safely negotiate contact with the ground in areas where drivers may cross with walkers. Eg.: Crosswalks at school zones.
