CANADA’S WORST DRIVER Cracks Down on Distracted Driving
— October 26, 2018
Distracted driving is an epidemic that continues to make headlines across Canada – most recently in Manitoba where tougher distracted driving laws are being enacted as of Nov. 1. In a first for CANADA’S WORST DRIVER, airing Mondays at10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, beginning Oct. 29. on Discovery, the show’s all-new season is focused squarely on technology and its influence on driving, highlighting everything from back-up cameras to cell phone usage behind the wheel.
With seven disastrous Canadian drivers hauled off the road and safely sequestered at the show’s famed Driver Rehabilitation Centre in Dunnville, Ont., series host Andrew Younghusband and the CANADA’S WORST DRIVER instructors have refreshed their teaching methods to tackle the risks associated with the introduction of smartphones, online navigation, and self-driving vehicles.
These eye-opening statistics from the CAA confirm the increasing threat of distracted driving on Canadian roads, and the new season of CANADA’S WORST DRIVER features many life-saving lessons about the dangers of this reckless habit.
