April is National Distracted Driver Awareness Month
OK, do not get caught texting (or talking on your cell phone) while driving (or even at a light) this month.
You could get fined up $250.
Here is a quote from the Modesto Bee:
The California Highway Patrol, along with more than 200 California law enforcement agencies, today launched a crackdown on distracted drivers.
Inattention behind the wheel was blamed for 116 traffic deaths in California in 2009, and more than 17,000 people were injured under similar circumstances, according to a CHP news release.
Motorists who attempt to multi-task while driving put not only themselves at risk, but also their passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians and others traveling the roadways, officials noted.
Drive Safe! Never forget.
