Police Review Record of Driver Cited 14 Times Over Distracted Driving

Distracted driving continues to be a serious threat to drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and several others across the country. But the United States is not the only country to have been directly impacted by the trend in the past years.

According to a series of news reports, a woman from Canada is being hailed as the country’s worst distracted driver. Many claim that the Vancouver woman deserves the nickname due to the fact she has already been cited 14 times over distracted driving. All citations have been tied to cell phone use.

In order to make sure that the distracted driver learns a lesson, a local sergeant wants to review her record. According to the local authorities, this motorist has been “educated” 14 separated times, and yet she continues to ignore the warnings, putting the lives of countless others in major danger.

The officer who pulled the woman the last two times she was caught using her phone while behind the wheel says he recognized her the second time. Once he realized he had already pulled her over for the same offense, he discussed the matter with his superintendent of motor vehicles, and asked the authorities to review her driving history. The review could lead to a license suspension.

Since the financial penalty is not forcing this particular driver to change her ways, many believe that there must be another approach that will lead to more positive outcomes.

In certain areas in Canada, distracted driving follows speed as one of the most deadly practices. Drivers should always keep that in mind, while they are in Canada or the United States.
If you’re serious about your safety and the safety of your loved ones, avoid doing the same as this Canadian driver. Stay safe by putting your phone down and focusing on the road at all times.
Also, avoid other types of distraction such as talking to passengers, handling pets, children, or reaching out to catching items on the floor. Also, avoid eating and drinking while behind the wheel.

Many studies suggest that popular anti-distracted driving features such as voice-to-text systems are just as distracting as using handheld devices. While most states in America have laws that prohibit the use of handheld devices, many still allow drivers to use voice command instead of handheld options, despite studies suggesting that both practices are dangerous.
