Traffic Tip -- March 24, 2014

Don’t drive, cycle with headphones

Did you know that driving a motor vehicle or operating a bicycle with headphones on both ears is against the law?

According to Section 215 of the Manitoba Highway Traffic Act, the use of headphones is prohibited. This law states:

• No driver of a motor vehicle or operator of a bicycle shall, while operating the motor vehicle or bicycle on a highway (city streets are considered highways), wear on both ears, headphones which are used for the purpose of listening to a radio or a recording.

Now you know. So the next time you decide to go cruising in your car or for a ride on your bicycle while listening to your favorite tunes wearing headphones, you better bring your wallet. Breaking this law could result in a traffic ticket and a fine totaling $113.10. Always keep at least one ear tuned in to safety.

Be happy, be safe.

To report Road Hazards or inquire about traffic matters, contact the Brandon Police Service traffic section at 729-2345.
