Stopped at Upper Middle Road and Third Line in Oakville, this driver was charged with texting and driving on May 1.

An Oakville driver is facing stiff penalties after she was charged a second time with distracted driving, Halton Regional Police say.

The first occurrence in 2017 led to a court conviction for the 45-year-old woman, says Const. Marc Taraso, who pulled the driver over near Upper Middle Road and Third Line on Wednesday evening (May 1). She was allegedly texting and driving.

Taraso said on Twitter, “Driver will be subject to escalating sanctions upon conviction including six demerit points and a seven-day day driver’s licence suspension.” He reminded motorists to not text and drive.

Social media users were flabbergasted.

Norman Bosworth tweeted, “When will people learn too not text and drive when will it sink into them?”
