If you’re a sneaky texter behind the wheel, think again, as police in New Brunswick have launched a pilot project onboard a bus to spot texting and driving, reports CTV News.
Constable Duane Squires of Saint John police says the initiative was modeled after one a similar one carried out by the York Regional Police. The elevated vantage point onboard a bus helps police and highway patrollers spot drivers who are texting on smartphones, which otherwise would not be seen from ground level.
Flagged drivers are soon intercepted by the dozen police cars which follow behind the bus. Texting and driving behind the wheel comes with a $120 fine and four demerit points in New Brunswick.
So far, Squires said that 13 drivers have been issued tickets for distracted driving after being caught from the vantage point of a bus.
