OK … so, what’s the cost of a Distracted Driving Violation Ticket…when you get caught…………

The fine for a single distracted driving violation ticket is $368, along with 4 penalty points that will be applied a driver’s record. On a first infraction, these points will also result in a driver paying a further $175 ICBC Driver Penalty Point premium, for a total of $543 for a first infraction.

Drivers who get two or more distracted driving convictions in a three-year period are charged a Driver Risk Premium (DRP), which is billed annually and is separate from any insurance premiums you may have. This amount will increase for each additional conviction.

For example, drivers with two or more convictions for the use of electronics devices while driving over a three-year period could pay as much as $2,000 in penalties - an increase of $740 - in addition to their regular vehicle insurance premium.

Internet Fraud and Text Messaging Scams

Campbell River

2017-10-17 13:39 PDT

File # Campbell River 2017-9372

More reports have been received again about frauds and scams.  Campbell River RCMP is alerting the public to reports of false text messages and internet scams. 

False ICBC text messages are claiming to refund clients for traffic infractions including violations for failing to stop at a red light. The text messages include a link directing the receiver to download malware where personal information can be sent. This type of link is called SMiShing, which is SMS phishing, a hoax by which to lure unsuspecting individuals to click an attached site.

Another recent internet scam was an application for a person to immigrate into Canada.  This elaborate scheme through the internet included photos of false passports, a work visa and other identification which had all been altered.  There was ongoing communication between fictitious airlines and consulates in order to steal more money.  

ICBC published customer tips to avoid being a victim of SmiShing:

- Don’t click links within text messages, especially if it’s sent from someone you don’t know. But also be aware that sometimes a scam text could also come from someone you do know.
- Don’t respond to texts that ask for private or financial information.
- If you get a message that appears to be from ICBC or another institution you regularly do business with, contact the business directly to confirm they sent you a message. ICBC’s customer service line is 1-800-663-3051.
- Never reply to a suspicious text message without doing your research and verifying the source.
- Never call a phone number from an unknown text.
- Common sense is your best protection against fraud. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

"We are stressing the public to report any type of suspected text scams and internet frauds by calling our non-emergency line 1-250-286-6221 or Crime Stoppers." said Inspector Jeff Preston. "You can also advise the Government of Canada’s Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501."
