Charges tallied in obstructed licence plate enforcement

CORNWALL – Despite repeated urging from police to put the cell phone down, city police are back focusing on distracted driving.

Cornwall police are zeroing in on distracted driving this month as part of their monthly Traffic Action Plan.

But it’s more than just cell phones – they suggest the GPS should be set before you drive off.

As for the enforcement campaign last month where the focus was those licence plate covers and other motor vehicle documentation, 64 document or obstructed plate fines were issued.

The two issues somewhat dovetailed in June as officers were sometimes having a hard time reading licence plate registration stickers due to clouded, tinted or light reflective plate covers.
