Police on the lookout for distracted drivers

Police in California and San Bernardino County are on the lookout for distracted drivers - drivers still holding cell phones to their ears, apply makeup, eating or texting while driving.

Congress has declared April 'National Distracted Driving Awareness Month'. Police will be everywhere citing drivers who are not focused on the road ahead. Police departments, including the Sheriff's departments, will hold 'zero-tolerance' enforcement days throughout the month. The California Highway Patrol plans to speak to students and alert them of thedangers of distracted driving.

Tickets will be given to those violating either the hands-free or no-texting laws. The ticket costs a minimum amount of $159 and subsequent tickets are $279, which include fees. This problem is growing in California every day.

Holding and talking on a cell phone or texting on one can be dangerous not only to you but to the motorist driving alongside you. This is against the law and laws are made to be followed.
