Okotoks RCMP got some help from High River's Integrated Traffic Unit last week.

They were set up on Southridge Drive near Westland Gate, on the lookout for people using their cell phones while driving.

Officers handed out seven tickets, and one person's license was suspended for driving while impaired.

Okotoks RCMP is reminding people to keep their phones tucked away even while at a red light. Merely holding your phone while driving can land you with a ticket.

Distracted driving could land drivers with a $300 fine as well as three demerit points.
