North Shore News:

In the span of just two hours, members of the North Vancouver RCMP, West Vancouver Police Department and the Integrated Road Safety Unit ticketed 74 people for using an electronic device while driving.

But those snagged in the sting can’t say they weren’t warned. Police publicized the campaign the day before and also posted dozens of signs on the roadways warning drivers of the distracted driving blitz as they approached Capilano Road and Marine Drive, Lions Gate Bridge as well as Taylor Way at Marine.

North Vancouver RCMP even brought in an electronic construction sign declaring “POLICE AHEAD STAY OFF YOUR PHONE.”
