CHP targets drivers on cell phones


By Bay City News Service

The California Highway Patrol and law enforcement agencies across the Bay Area are joining forces today (Aug. 10) for a strict zero-tolerance campaign aimed at issuing citations to motorists talking or texting on cell phones while driving.

The campaign to highlight distracted driving offenses will mirror a similar two-day enforcement effort last year.

The CHP says that according to collision reports, cell phone use is the leading identifiable source of distracted driving.

Other sources of distracted driving are applying makeup, using global positioning equipment, eating, drinking, changing music and reading.
