SA Cops Unleash Another Traffic Blitz

Salmon Arm RCMP say that members spent this past Monday watching the Trans-Canada Highway for traffic violations.

Officers were focused on intersection infractions and distracted driving at Shuswap Street and Highway One.

Two hours of monitoring that area turned up nine violation tickets, three of which were for distracted driving.

An RCMP release notes that only one of the tickets issued that day was to a commercial vehicle driver.

Local Police say that they will continue to monitor various intersections in the Salmon Arm area, and note that drivers should be aware that a distracted driving ticket is worth $368.
