M.E. and YOU: Weekly Municipal Enforcement Messages

Posted On Monday February 11, 2019

When you’re on the road your primary focus should be on your driving. Using a hand held device (even at a red light), reading, eating a meal or personal grooming reduce your focus and reduce your awareness of your surroundings. You are four times more likely to be involved in a collision while using your cell phone and eight times more likely to crash while texting. Whether you’re involved in a collision or not, you could receive a fine of $287 and three demerit points on your license for distracted driving.  

Remember, you share the road with other drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. Stay focused on your driving, turn your cell phone off or put it away and make every trip safe for you and others. 

Fort Saskatchewan is a Vision Zero community and asks, “What are you doing to make our roads safer?” For more information on Vision Zero please visit  fortsask.ca/visionzero.
