RCMP vehicles should be equipped with hands-free phone systems

Dear Sir:

At 6:44 pm Wednesday, 26 March I witnessed a female RCMP officer driving one of their new Ford AWD vehicles turning left through the 4-way stop from Hwy 16 westbound onto Hwy 37 southbound, steering one-handed while carrying on a conversation on a hand-held cellular phone.

If these new vehicles do not come equipped with hands-free bluetooth systems, I would like to know why not.

Had I been doing the same thing, I would deservedly be in possession of a citation for distracted driving.

Tim Keenan, Terrace, B.C.
