November's Traffic Safety Spotlight's results are in, and SGI says a lot of people chose to ignore their advice.

#DoNotRiskIt was SGI's message to any suspended or unregistered drivers, the focus of last months spotlight. 

In total, 328 offences were handed for suspended or disqualified driving, that's 328 people suffering from $580 fines.

They also managed to catch 804 people operating a motor vehicle or trailer without a valid registration and another 316 offences were given for driving without a valid license or failing to abide by their license restrictions. 

SGI boasted that with so many law enforcement vehicles equipped with automated license plate readers, more than 140 vehicles across the province including some here in the Energy City, it's never been easier to catch suspended or unregistered drivers and disqualified plates. 

They also warn that invalid plates and suspended licenses means no insurance coverage, that's hundred and thousands of dollars you'll have to pay if you're in a collision.

Other offences handed out this November included:

  • 288 impaired driving related offences (including 251 Criminal Code charges)
  • 325 seatbelt related offences
  • 728 distracted driving offences (including 601 for cellphone use)
  • 5,022 speeding-related offences
