Drivers using a hand-held phone, whether it’s to text or take a quick peek at a map, remains a problem right across the country.

Canada Road Safety week began on Tuesday and officials are cracking down on distracted driving.

Police are also looking for drivers impaired by alcohol or dugs, failure to use or the improper use of seat belts, and aggressive driving. Police said those three, along with distracted driving, are called the “Big 4 Killers.”

Officers will be conducting targeted traffic enforcement in and around the City of Toronto, on Highways 427 and 401, the Don Valley Parkway, the Gardiner Expressway, as well as city streets.
