This is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month for April


For all you drivers who don’t obey the law and continue to talk on the phone without using a hands free device or texting stop it. The month of April is the National Distracted Driving Awareness. The California Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies across the state are cracking down on distracted motorists. CHP Commissioner Joseph Farrow said, “We are taking part of a national campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to bring attention to the issue of distracted driving; specifically cell phone use and texting and driving.” More than 3,000 people across the country were killed last year as the result of distracted driving, said Farrow. The fine for talking on a cell phone or texting is $159.00 or higher. Don’t do it! It is not worth putting your life and other at risk. For a call or text that can wait.
