MARCH IS DISTRACTED DRIVER AWARENESS MONTH
If you’re looking at your phone, you can’t see the road.
Whether you’re reading emails or taking a call without a hands-free system, using an electronic device behind the wheel is a dangerous distraction. When you use a phone while driving, you increase the likelihood of getting into a crash by five times – that’s five times the risk of hurting yourself or somebody else on the road. Even though checking your phone at a red light may seem harmless, the truth is anything that takes your focus away from the road while in traffic presents a real danger.
Not only is using an electronic device while driving a bad idea, it’s against the law and can result in tough penalties and stiff fines.
If you use a phone behind the wheel, you will be caught
Police are stepping up enforcement to put a stop to distracted driving. With increased enforcement in communities throughout B.C., you can bet that if you use an electronic device behind the wheel, you will be ticketed.
As of June 1, 2016, fines and penalties have increased to $368 and four penalty points.
This means that having multiple infractions can now put a serious dent in your wallet as well as your vehicle.
