More stats are coming forward on distracted drivers.
In Alberta, between September 1, 2011, when distracted driving legislation was first introduced and March 31, 2017, there have been 139,579 convictions.
"Distracted driving can include putting on make up, eating with two hands where it's definitely a distraction," said Morinville RCMP Corporal Sheldon Robb. "People's full attention does need to be put on the road and what they're doing."
During the 2016-17 fiscal year, male drivers accounted for nearly two-thirds of all convictions. Men aged 22-34 had the highest conviction rates.
RCMP say driver distractions contribute to 20 to 30 per cent of all collisions and that distracted drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a crash.
97 per cent of the convictions were for using a hand-held device while driving.
