The West Shore RCMP said they received a report Friday morning of a car all over the road and found that the motorist had been pumping her breast milk while driving.

Recently, ICBC has been reminding drivers that using a phone while driving is not worth risking your life for. RCMP have also been stepping up enforcement to catch those who don’t keep their eyes on the road while driving, especially during September which is distracted driving awareness month.
