Per year, 15 people are killed in accidents related to distracted driving in the North Central region between 2017 and 2021.

Police are also expected to ramp up enforcement over the long weekend, and throughout the month.

ICBC added that the return of school and work routines is another reason to ignore distractions when on the road.
