Two drivers were fined $615 for texting while driving on the Queensway in Ottawa.

Ottawa OPP caught two drivers who were using their phones on the Queensway during rush hour on Tuesday.

Both were pulled over heading west in doubtless heavy traffic through the downtown core, one at Parkdale Avenue and the other at Rochester Street.

While bumper-to-bumper traffic may tempt you to text, it will cost you a fine of over $600 and likely a hike in your insurance rates, police warn.

To help teach this lesson, East Region OPP tweeted pictures of the two tickets.
