In a tweet, the Vancouver Police Department noted one of its officers has just handed a woman her 14th ticket for using a cellphone while behind the wheel.

The officer has requested that the woman be prohibited from driving, although the police department hasn't said when — or how — that penalty might be imposed.
Just last week, Richmond RCMP noted the driver had received her 12th ticket for distracted driving. She was ticketed after nearly colliding with an officer.
