Cops nab 25 in distracted driving crackdown

A distracted driving blitz from Kelowna RCMP lead to a driver being ticketed every three and a half minutes.

On Thursday, police set up along Springfield Road and wrote out 25 tickets in 90 minutes. 

Most were for texting while driving, while some were caught driving without a seatbelt on.

Out of those people, one was found to have already been given five tickets in the past, all for distracted driving.

The RCMP says there were multiple drivers who unknowingly got away, because all the officers were already busy with other drivers.

It's currently a 368 dollar fine if you're caught driving while using your phone.
