VPD pulled over an almost absurdly distracted driver on Wednesday, November 15th.
The Vancouver motorist had both an iPhone as well as a iPad strapped to his steering wheel while driving. Evidently, neither of these electronic devices should be fastened to a steering wheel, and the Lexus driver was dinged a whopping $368 for his offence.
Vancouver Driver Blasted On Twitter
VPD took to twitter to mock the dangerous driver, stating that you, “Can’t make it up. Guy had iPad and cell phone attached by strings on steering wheel while driving! Yes, that’s his ticket he’s holding.”

Just yesterday VPD shared a tweet after they caught a driver distracted with the hit game, Pokemon Go. In the tweet they mention that, “While playing #PokemonGo may be fun, it’s not worth risking your life or the lives of others so that you can play while driving!”
Distracted driver now claims more lives per year than drunk driving. In an effort to combat the crisis, distracted driving will be coined “high risk,” and a double offence within three years will slap offenders with a $2000 fine.
