Tomorrow, police will be creatively surveying and targeting distracted driving at the intersection of Marine Drive and Capilano Road. The busy North Vancouver intersection has been selected as part of this month's ‘Distracted Driving Campaign’.

Media is invited to attend this enforcement driving blitz on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 2:30 pm. This is a multi-agency campaign supported by the North Vancouver RCMP, West Vancouver Police, IFNU, ICBC, CN Police, and IRSU.

Speakers and photo opportunities will be available. ICBC Road Safety Manger, Mark Milner, will also be available at the location to speak to media (available from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.).

You're five times more likely to crash using your phone – police have a vested interest in cracking down on distracted drivers, said Supt. Chris Kennedy, Officer in Charge of the North Vancouver RCMP. More than 800 crashes occur every day in B.C. Many of these incidents are caused by distracted driving, and are preventable.

For more information on distracted driving visit RCMP.CA and ICBC websites.
