April is Distracted Driving Month

Posted on February 2, 2017 at 2:20 PM by Margaret Livingston

April is distracted driving month statewide. The ECPD is vigorously enforcing the vehicle code sections that pertain to distracting actions that affect driver safety, including, texting, wearing ear buds, and eating while driving. Last year, the Department cited 404 persons in one month in an effort to reduce collisions in our city. Officers even cited one driver for eating a bowl of cereal while driving, another for assembling a fish tank while driving, and others for unsafe actions.
