Phone in Hand and Ticket in the Other Campaign Kicks Off Next Month - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
As reported by the California Office of Traffic Safety, the office has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the California Highway Patrol, and 37 law enforcement agencies across the greater Sacramento region to eliminate motorists’ hand-held cell phone use and texting.
California has been selected to receive federal support for the “Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other” project. The Office of Traffic Safety was awarded $600,000 in federal funds for these special high visibility law enforcement operations. The California program will be conducted in the Sacramento valley region comprising eight counties and 3.8 million residents.
Distracted drivers talking on a hand-held cell phone or texting will receive a first-time ticket costing a minimum of $159, with a second offense costing $279. But the goal of the special enforcement operation is not to issue tickets, but to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.
Drivers be warned, the next wave of enforcement will occur in February-March and June, 2013. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
