A Montreal man claims he was pulled over for using his Apple Watch smartwatch while driving, receiving a $100 fine and four demerit points.
Jeffrey Macesin recounted his story while speaking with the CTV Montreal Canadian TV news station, after being cited by a Quebec Highway Safety Code that prohibits using a "handheld device that includes a telephone function."
Here is what Macesin said in a recent interview: "Going towards Vaudreuil, there was a cop car behind me and he didn't have his lights on yet, but then he turned them on and I thought maybe he just wanted me to get out of the way. I was just confused."
There is concern that smartwatches will just be another technology to distract drivers while behind the wheel - and it looks like drivers are already getting pulled over.
