Saskatchewan Government Insurance is out with its results from October's traffic safety spotlight, which focused on distracted driving.

Police across the province caught 445 drivers throughout the month, with 246 violations for cellphone use while driving; 151 tickets for driving without due care and attention; 21 tickets for driving a vehicle without reasonable consideration for others; 17 tickets for performing an activity to distract, startle, or interfere; six tickets for stunting; three tickets for causing a loud and unnecessary noise with a vehicle, and one ticket for racing.

Furthermore, a total of 6,576 tickets were issued for speeding, with 432 for seatbelt violations, and 343 for impaired driving.

With a high number of impaired drivers, and with the imminent holiday season, that will be where SGI puts the spotlight next month.

"December focus will be on impaired driving, and that is typically the focus in December," stated Media Relations Manager with SGI, Kelley Brinkworth. "With all the festivities going on, the holiday parties and everything going on, impaired driving the past few years has been the focus."

November's spotlight has been on safe winter driving.
