Saskatoon-get off your phones on the road!!!

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

My sister in Regina, Sk just sent me an article from the Regina Leader Post as a way to poke fun as we live in competing cities (Saskatoon vs Regina-a no brainer to me of course!) This article was about cell phone usage in vehicles.

From January 1st until May 15th Regina police have issued 66 tickets and 17 warnings to Regina drivers who were using their cell phones. In that same time frame Saskatoon police issued 407 tickets and 112 warnings. Whether that means that we are offending more or that our police force is actually making a bigger effort I am not sure. As a Saskatoon real estate agent I know that there are times that I need to talk and drive-but I did get a vehicle with blue tooth capability so that I am not talking real estate in Saskatoon and risking getting into trouble!

While people are still talkingĀ on their cell phones in Saskatoon at a steady rate at least the accidents appear to be going down. There has been a decrease by 20% in collisions in the city. As a Saskatoon realtor I spend so much time in my car that I see pretty much everything and nothing surprises me. Showing people houses for sale in Saskatoon on a daily basis means loads of time all around the city and I tend to watch how people drive. I do agree that there are some drivers out there who are just terrible-doesn’t matter if they have a cell phone in their hand or not!!

Contact me for all of your Saskatoon real estate needs as I am a very active Saskatoon real estate agent and I would love to talk to you about buying a house for sale in Saskatoon or about selling your house for sale in Saskatoon.
