Drivers are being reminded that the current specified penalty for a distracted driving offence is $287.00 in addition to three demerit points applied on the date of conviction.

Current legislation dictates that 15 or more accumulated demerit points, or eight for a Novice/GDL driver, within a period of two years will result in a licence suspension.

Grande Prairie RCMP are asking the public to contribute to safer roads in their community by modelling safe driving behaviours.
