Distracted drivers at Avenue Rd. & Davenport

Toronto police officer stops 3 distracted drivers — all on their cellphones — at the same time

On Monday afternoon, Toronto police officer Kirk Papadopoulos was parked on a curbside near Avenue Road and Davenport Road in his unmarked car when he stopped three distracted drivers within the span of about 30 seconds.

“Three distracted drivers and they all didn’t notice me. I was in full uniform. They didn’t notice me, I guess, because they were so focused on their cellphone while at the intersections of traffic,” he said.

Officer Papadopoulos works for Toronto police’s Traffic Services Vision Zero Unit.
