April: National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

In recognition of April as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, County police officers will focus attention on enforcing distracted driving-related violations.

Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. Violations include using a hand-held cell phone, texting, eating and drinking, grooming, reading and watching videos while driving.

County police officers observing the violations, as well as any other distracted driving activity, will issue citations to the driver.
