Don't do what this guy is doing.

Kamloops Mounties are warning local drivers to be smart and put their phone down while driving.

Last week, on Sept. 3 and 6, police issued 133 tickets to people caught using an electronic device while behind the wheel. 

Not only that, another 102 tickets were issued for failing to use a seatbelt.

"These numbers are high," says Cpl. Jodi Shelkie in a press release. "Motorists need to put down their phone and buckle up. It's not just a matter of having to pay a fine if you're caught offending, it could be a matter of life and death."

RCMP will be out again this month enforcing the law.
