A Lower Mainland woman who was stopped 14 times for distracted driving in the last five years is being taken off the road.
Richmond RCMP took to Twitter this evening to deliver the news.
Officers in Richmond say they were surprised to see the woman’s record of 12 previous stops when they nabbed her for the offence in early March.
Less than a week later, she was stopped by Vancouver police for, once again, distracted driving.

At the time, the VPD said it was planning to request the woman be prohibited from driving
Speaking on the Jon McComb show last month, B.C.’s Superintendent of Motor Vehicles Sam McLeaod said he wouldn’t talk about the specific case, but did say in these situations the province has options ranging from warning letters to a full driving prohibition.
“Fourteen traffic tickets for distracted driving in five years is really egregious driving behaviour. I think it signals a total disregard for the rules of the road and a total disregard for public safety.”
