Waze and the Law
Distracted driving and/or driving while using a mobile phone kills and injures hundreds of people every year. Always keep your focus on the road when driving.

Waze allows you to drive without looking at or touching the phone once the app is opened. You can essentially drive with Waze in your pocket and still receive all the guidance and information you need in real time.
To Remain Legal: If you are using your phone as a navigation device in Manitoba, it must be mounted and able to be activated/deactivated by one touch.
