|An SUV driver in Ottawa who was caught on camera using her cellphone while driving and then attempting to cut off a motorcyclist is now facing charges. The Ottawa Police Service says the woman has been charged with careless driving, distracted driving, and failure to notify change of address. The charges stem from an incident last Friday, which motorcyclist Erik Hanna recorded on this helmet cam.|
Hanna's video shows the woman texting behind the wheel and ignoring him when he taps on her window. Hanna said she failed to advance – twice – when the traffic light changed. Eventually, Hanna pulled ahead and continued on his way. But moments later, the same SUV came up dangerously close beside him and pulled into his lane, coming within inches of hitting his bike.
