Greater Sudbury Police issued 67 provincial offence notices April 16 during a blitz related to people using their cell phones while driving.

The blitz was a part of a month-long enforcement initiative by the police service's traffic management unit surrounding the use of cell phones while driving.


The fine for such an offence recently increased from $155 to $280.

“The traffic management unit will be continuing their enforcement efforts throughout April,” a press release said. “Engaging in high-risk driving behaviour such as holding, texting or communicating with a cell phone while driving, puts everyone at risk.”
