Bad time to look at phone

Surfing social media while stopped at a red light is never a good idea.

Doing it beside a police car is even worse.

A Victoria driver was fined more than $500 Saturday night, when a police cruiser pulled up beside the man.

Police noticed the glow of the man's phone, and an officer stepped out to tap on the man's window.

It was the driver's third ticket in three years for using an electronic device while driving. He wasn't wearing a seatbelt, either.

ICBC stats show distracted driving is the second-leading cause of motor vehicle fatalities in British Columbia.
