BC still recording too many distracted drivers

In February, more than 5600 tickets were handed out province-wide.

Investigators say too many drivers are putting themselves and others at risk by choosing to ignore the rules.
 
RCMP Corporal Robert McDonald with the Lower Mainland District Traffic Services says even when warning signs were posted in Delta, almost 50 violators were recorded in one day.
 
Across bc, 5514 tickets were issued to people caught using electronic devices while driving, along with 103 for driving without due care.
 
More blitzes are planned throughout the year.
