yeah but a lot of people on the road aren't exactly car enthusiasts and some are still driving cars from 1980s or 1990s, cars that are made BEFORE smart phones came into the market and "distracted driving" was virtually non-existent.

when you go on a road trip, you look at the map and cops didn't ticket people for that.

Langley Police handed out 145 tickets in one day. 200 and 64th is a regular spot where they've been hauling in distracted drivers for years. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. I wonder how many repeat offenders there were.

$37K in distracted driving tickets handed out in Langley in a single day - Langley Times

Just one day after ICBC and police launched a month-long campaign to target distracted drivers, police wrote over 100 tickets in a single day in Langley for that very offence.

On Friday Sept. 2, Cpl. Greg Mainwood and his team, the Lower Mainland Integrated Road Safety Unit (IRSU), staged an operation to watch for distracted drivers.

Setting up in the area of Fraser Highway and 200 Street and at 200 Street and 64 Avenue, the five-officer team wrote more than 100 tickets to drivers who were using their cellphones while driving and another 43 to drivers who were not wearing seat belts.

Mainwood said it was the drivers who were pulling up to intersections while using their cellular phones who were were stopped.

“Many drivers were shocked to receive a $368 fine for using their phones,” said Mainwood. “Many others had excuses for why the phone was in their hands, such as playing music or checking the time.”

All of these drivers were approaching a busy intersection when observed on their device.

“Cellphones aren’t the only distractions in your vehicle,” Mainwood said.

“One driver had a medium-sized dog draped across his left arm and lap while he continued texting with his right hand as he approached the intersection. This driver was steering with his knee and no hands on the wheel.”

Police say drivers are still unclear about the role phones can play while they are driving.

“Drivers appear to be under the misinformation that picking up their phone to check text messages, change music or holding the phone to use the speaker phone function are not considered using their device,” said Const. Melissa Wutke, spokesperson for BC Traffic Services. “That is certainly not the case.

“Anytime you are holding your device in your hand, or when you are taking your eyes off of the road to manipulate buttons on that device, it is considered using the device and is subject to a $368 fine under the Motor Vehicle Act,” said Wutke.

Roadways are very dynamic environments with situations and circumstances that can change quickly. By taking your eyes off of the road for even a moment you increase the chance of a collision or accident, said police.

Drivers are reminded that any cellphone or electronic device in your vehicle must be fixed to the dash and the driver may only operate that device with one touch. Drivers may not watch the screens on those devices.

Graduated licence class 7 drivers, or those who are required to display an “L” or “N” on the vehicle, may not use any electronic device at all, including hands free or GPS.

Someone remind me if this applies to your infotainment system?

Well considering all infotainment systems are already permanently affixed to one's dash, I don't see why it's considered any different. How many of you use both hands to change a song or adjust the temperature in your car?

Pretty sure you wont get ticketed for turning on your heated seats at a red light.

People need to use their common sense in why these laws are in place.
Focus more on what's the campaign about rather than looking for loopholes in the system.

If you mount your phone on the windshield and use it as a GPS. That is OK.
If you mount your phone on the windshield and start texting, that is not OK.
Doesn't matter if you're texting with 1 finger, 2 fingers, all 5 fingers, etc.

People these days still aren't wearing seat belts? Seriously?

If we havnt been able to correct that in the last 30 years, how the fuck do you think you are going to solve distracted driving?

There's surprisingly still a lot of people who won't wear a seatbelt and openly claim they don't need one or that they are unsafe. Always a surprise to hear someone say it or read it. But they're out there

I don't wear a seatbelt for my driving, I wear it for the morons on the road that don't seem to understand the concept of driving a vehicle.

lol let's just not bother ticketing people who don't wear seatbelts

but void and null any injury claims that result from it and/or let the person win a Darwin award

like a comedian once said, fuck it, let's just go ahead and remove all the safety warnings on everything. Too many idiots in this world, we could use a reduction.

i've been rear ended by a woman distracted by her dog before, and have also seen people with dogs on their laps while driving.

i like dogs as much as the next guy, but dogs should absolutely be separated from drivers in the car. If it was a baby in a driver's lap, this wouldn't even be an argument.

Totally agree. Many people who claim "My dog is like a child to me!" Well would you drive with your fucking child in your lap?

Every dog owner that ever even thinks about driving with their dog in their lap or front seat, just remember nobody is gonna feel sorry for you when you get in an accident and the air bag reduces your pet to a blood stain on your shirt. We will however all feel extremely saddened at how a harmless animal had such a shitty irresponsible owner.

Probably a bunch of fat fucks who feel seat belts are too tight and restrictive for their obese bodies.
