The Connecticut Highway Safety Office is kicking off its annual Distracted Driving Campaign as part of National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The effort will span through the month of April, kicking off on April 4 and running through April 30. The effort will ramp up again Aug. 3-16.
Law enforcement will be looking for drivers who choose to ignore Connecticut’s mobile phone laws. Last year, Connecticut drivers started to get the message as a result of this crackdown. Law enforcement wrote more than 22,000 citations as part of last year’s effort to get drivers to put down their phones and pay attention to the road.
