|CALGARY – It’s not unusual to catch a driver or two on their phones while commuting around Calgary, but this photo caught a lot of people by surprise. Eric Coulson posted a photo on March 24, 2016 that appears to show a Calgary Police officer using their cell phone behind the wheel.|
Police said they have spoken with the officer from the photo and that the phone use was urgent and work-related. But they admit she could have pulled over and handled this matter more safely.
|Vancouver Police say they’ve issued more than 1,600 distracted driving tickets for the month of March.|
The ticket blitz was part of a month-long campaign to combat distracted driving which kills dozens in B.C. annually.
