Plan on heading out on the Inland Island Highway, or Old Island Highway this weekend all the way up to Port Hardy?

Good idea to stay off your cell phone, says RCMP Staff Sergeant Mark Whitworth, with police out in full force in a province wide distracted driving crackdown.

That enforcement campaign runs all month long.

Just recently the punishment for distracted driving was increased…adding 3 penalty points to the standard 167-dollar fine.
