Use of cellphone while driving results in fine

At 2:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, Colchester District RCMP were patrolling the Highway 104 near Bible Hill when an officer observed a female driver using her cellular telephone to record herself while driving.

A 28-year-old woman of Colchester County was issued a Summary Offence Ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving while using her hand-held cellular telephone. It carries a fine of $237.50.
