Crackdown on phone use while driving

Crackdown on phone use while driving

Texting_DrivingBe careful how you drive for the next month or so because, between April 14th and May 11th every Police Force in the Province is participating in a blitz to discourage cell phone use while driving and keeping a watch out for speeders. It is a province wide surveillance aimed at those people who still persist on using their smart phones to communicate to other people while driving a vehicle.

There will also be special speed traps set up throughout the province to catch those drivers who don’t obey the limits; whether in the city or out on the highways, they’ll be watching. The timing is important as the nice weather tends to excite people and affects peoples driving habits causing us to be somewhat more reckless or even thoughtless when it comes to road safety.

The special deployment was formed by a conglomerate of the Police Association of Québec, the Québec Provincial Police, (QPP-SQ),  the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), the Service de Police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ) and the Société de l’assurance automobile de Québec.

So you may want to think twice before answering that cell phone that rings while you’re driving and you may want to watch your speed, and you especially don’t want to be caught doing both at the same time. Fines are costly and demerit points will be subtracted.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
