Distracted driving citations in Pennsylvania jumped by 52 percent previous year, and Berks County is among the 10 counties that have the most, according to information released Monday by the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts. "Distracted driving is unsafe and irresponsible".

This year, they plan to do the same.

Throughout the corridor, ODOT will be placing signage alerting drivers when they enter the corridor and also informing them that this is a high enforcement area.

"Research shows that drivers are three times more likely to crash when talking on the phone, and 23 times more likely to crash when entering information into their phone", said Erika Mascorro, program manager for the commission, in a statement. They can tap or swipe their phone if it's mounted in a secure place in their auto. Violators are liable for fines of $25 on a first offense and $50 on each subsequent offense, plus court costs.

AAA says distracted driving up among Americans

"Lorain County Public Health works with multiple sectors to identify contributing factors to local crashes such as impaired driving, distracted driving and infrastructure", said David Covell, health commissioner for Lorain County Public Health said.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is cruising the highways across the state this week looking for distracted drivers. Officers will emphasize enforcement of cellphone and distracted driving laws with the aim of increasing voluntary compliance by motorists. "Distractions come in many forms beyond the use of a cell phone, such as interacting with passengers, eating or drinking, reaching for things in the back seat and programming your Global Positioning System while driving". When examining statistics gathered from counties in major Texas metropolitan areas, the total number of crashes caused by distracted drivers increased in each of the areas listed.

"Sending a text message is a quick and easy way to communicate", FTPD Chief Richard A. Grammar said. Once you are safely off the road, it is safe to text. "While driving, pay attention to the road, not your phone".

Distracted driving can be anything that keeps you from focusing on driving, including eating, drinking, personal grooming, reading, pets and cellular phones. Never call, text or play games while walking or cycling.
