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.
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.
