Distracted Driving Campaign

            The month of April has been selected as the Distracted Driving Awareness/Enforcement Campaign.  This is a statewide campaign and all law enforcement agencies are participating to assist with reducing the number of collisions and injuries as a result of distracted driving.  During every traffic stop, officers will be disseminating educational material to drivers.  Police can stop and ticket drivers for using a handheld cell phone.  Drivers will face fines (including court costs) of:

                        $83 first offense

                        $140 second offense

                        $160 third offense

                       

            Drivers can also be ticketed for writing, sending or reading a text or electronic message while driving.  The fine is:

                        $70 and 1 point

            Please assist law enforcement with this important campaign, and adhere to the laws, as traffic safety and awareness is our top priority.
