Cell Phone Scofflaws Still Not Getting the Message

Another round of Winnipeg drivers were caught putting their lives and those of others at risk this week.

We set up a camera on St. Anne’s Road at Regal Avenue to catch drivers yakking away on their cell phones, despite the hand-held ban that’s been in place for nearly a year.


Besides those who risked an almost $200 fine, there were a few impatient motorists who couldn’t wait their turn to cross the median.

In July, we featured another round of videos showcasing scofflaws out and about.

The problem has become so bad, Winnipeg police are having to resort to dressing up in a disguise to nab those who don’t obey.
