More police will be on the roads in May to do dangerous driving enforcement.

RCMP say it’s High-Risk Driving Month in the province. They say around 114 die on B.C. roads every year because of high-risk driving. This includes around 18 people on Vancouver Island.

May 21 is considered National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day, according to police.

Police say distracted driving can be seen as:

  • Speeding/excessive speed
  • Impaired driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Following too closely
  • Driving without paying attention
  • Illegal passing
  • Racing

BC Highway Patrol Chief Supt. Holly Turton says drivers can keep themselves and others safe by slowing down and obeying speed limits, wearing a seatbelt, driving defensively and being sober and free of distractions.
