Vancouver Police say drivers aren’t getting the message about distracted driving.
Constable Brian Montague says nearly fifty drivers were handed 167-dollar fines for texting or talking while driving on June 4th and 5th.
“It is alittle frustrating, we’re alittle surprised to that it hasn’t sunk in just how dangerous this can be. You got back years and years and seatbelt laws were sort of the big safety concern, now it seems everyone seems to wear their seatbelt, it’s a matter of habit.”
The VPD handed out tickets to more than 97-hundred drivers last year alone for using an electronic device.
