Police Crackdown on Distracted Driving


 A two week law enforcement blitz, aimed at distracted drivers, began Tuesday in West Virginia.

From Huntington to Williamson, the federally funded overtime law enforcement crackdown will likely see a flurry of 100 dollar citations handed out.

Penalties will be issued for calling or texting while driving without using hands free devices, and not wearing seatbelts.

Police and sheriff’s deputies will target high school zones, especially watching student drivers coming in and leaving school, ranked as some of the worst overall offenders.
