Victoria Police Department Nabs 40 Distracted Drivers
Distracted driving campaign March 2016
Distracted driving is responsible for more than a quarter of the fatalities on BC roads.
It’s a behaviour that kills an average of 78 people in BC every year, ten on Vancouver Island alone.
Despite the numbers, Victoria drivers still aren’t getting the message, as VicPD officers caught 40 drivers using their mobile devices while driving in one day.
