That’s why drivers get distracted during cellphone conversations, even when […]

The Editor Speaks: Drinking and blogging

It is utterly appalling that all the warnings the RCIPS have been giving over the past few weeks about drinking and driving a lot of motorists are ignoring them. There was a fatal accident on Esterley Tibbetts Highway on Nov 30 due to a driver who has now been charged with DUI and another who […]
