BT Vancouver: New distracted driving penalties start today
Tougher new penalties are now in place for anyone caught using a hand-held device while behind the wheel. Any driver ticketed for using a hand-held device will have three penalty points added to their driving record. They will also be given a $167 fine.
At least five people have been arrested at Oppenheimer Park, as the last of the tents came down. Officers were at the park all day, asking campers to respect the Supreme Court order and move on from the tent city.
