SGI is reminding motorist to #JustDrive.

Distracted driving is the traffic safety spotlight for the month of October. Last year distracted drivers caused more than 6,000 collisions resulting in 953 injuries and 26 deaths. It's the second leading cause of collisions in the province and that's why law enforcement will be taking a special look at distracted drivers this month.

“Police have plenty of ways to catch distracted drivers in the act,” said Penny McCune, Chief Operating Officer of the Auto Fund. “They could be cruising through traffic in unmarked SUVs, they might be in plainclothes on the sidewalks, or maybe they’ll be watching from elevated vantage points overlooking busy thoroughfares. Pay attention: if you drive distracted, you’re going to get caught.”

A distracted driving ticket can cost you two hundred and eighty dollars plus four demerit points.

SGI shared a few tips on how to drive distraction-free:

-Put your cellphone on Do Not Disturb or Airplane mode while driving.

-Ask your passenger to handle answering any messages.

-Can’t leave your phone alone? Toss it in the trunk or back seat.

-If you’re using GPS, enter your destination ahead of time.

-If you drop something, leave it. Don’t fumble around for it.

-Make your drive time, quiet time.
