SGI made it known distracted driving was their Traffic Safety Focus of the Month of March.
But it appears the message didn’t reach some of the province’s motorists.
711 tickets were doled out for distracted driving offences, a number SGI spokesperson Tyler McMurchy said establishes a new record.
“The previous record was set back in the most recent number, 636,” he said.
McMurchy said while the number is high, this also is reflected of the work law enforcement is doing.
“It just shows you some of the creative tactics law enforcement is using.”
