While on patrol over the March Break, OPP will be putting a concentrated effort on catching those who are distracted driving.

Sgt Kerry Schmidt says there is a scary trend when it comes to inattentive driving.

    He says since 2009, nearly 700 people have been killed as a result of inattentive driving. Last year alone, OPP responded to more than 8700 crashes that were a result of distracted driving, which resulted in 87 deaths, once again surpassing speed related deaths, drunk driving and not wearing a seatbelt.
