Manitoba does not enforce the new law guideline, that is, 1.
At the end of November, the police have suspended more than 240 controllers licenses for at least three days, officials of Manitoba Public Insurance have said.
"These police executions confirm that Manitoba does not have too much information about the dangers and consequences of the distracted driver, and they should be concerned about road users," said Satvir Jatana, MPI media vice president. news release
The Manitoba RCMP and the Brandon Police Service operated by 67 and 21 drivers in the use of electronic devices in November, respectively.
The MPI said Monday morning that the Winnipeg Police Service had left 149 licenses. Later on Monday, WPS traffic fragmentation Insp. Gord Spado updated the numbers, saying the city police had 153 authorizations a month.
The Provincial Council, including Winnipeg Police Newspaper, is 241.
In 2017, distracted driving was a factor that affected more than 15,000 combinations and killed 30 people in a collision with motor vehicles.
In addition to the ongoing roadside suspension, drivers condemned as a result of the use of an electronic device can also save $ 672 and $ 67 a fine on the MPI driver's safety scale.

Winnipeg on Insp. Spado said he was shocked that the new driving force of the distracted law was not punished by a drop in the number of drivers compared to November 2017. That month, the city police sent 183 driving distracted tickets, he said, but it's too early in the long run there will be no changes.
"I expect a hundred percent drop. But I think a month ago the data was not enough to say really not working," he said.
"The size of the sample is very small and it will last for months to make any changes or changes that may occur."
Brian Smiley, the MPI Communications Director, said last month that the numbers were more than shocked.
"It is not surprising that people continue to follow … It takes a little bit to change the behavior of the drivers," he said.
"But again, we are hopeful. There are certainly a lot of work done, but we will move forward, we will try our safer ways."
"Our officials regularly warn drivers that are seriously injured and cause collisions that cause death on roads, these drivers are clearly at risk for all Manitoba," said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Scott Kolody told MPI.
"These new and solid punishments send a very clear message that driving behavior is not allowed."
& # 39; They can not move forward & # 39;
Winnipeggers CBC News was busy saying that they were not convinced that drivers would pay special attention.
Bob Baisinger, as CBC News said as he came to Osborne Village, said he did not drive now, but the wheel was behind the drivers before paying attention. For pedestrians, he said irritating when he saw that makeup on his handset.
"I'm glad I like to increase the penalty. I hope it works," said Baisinger.
But he does not expect a miracle.
"It still happens, because it can only be left," he said.
Rebecca Craig, when she talked with CBC, when he walked to Osborne Village, said he did not expect to be completely eliminated from uncontrolled care. But it was happy to see more severe punishments, when people heard the people listening.
"People, you know, their phones use Google Maps and things. I always think it's a problem," he said.
"But I think it's a good idea to have these consequences."
