There were over two charges a day laid by police as part of their latest road safety campaign.
The ten day blitz by the Ontario Provincial Police targeted distracted drivers wrapped up on Sunday.
At Monday night’s council meeting in Quinte West, Detachment Commander Christina Reeve said there were 23 charges laid over the ten day period.
She encouraged people to put the phones down as the weather is getting nicer and there is more to be on the lookout for including kids, more pedestrians and animals.
The fine if convicted of distracted driving begins at $490 and three demerit points.
