In a prior post, we noted that distracted driving is still a problem…even in 2016. Law enforcement agencies apparently see it as an ongoing problem as well. Last week, officers across Minnesota participated in a week long crackdown on texting while driving violations.
According to a startribune.com report, officers from 300 agencies across the state issued 972 citations. In a few instances, drivers were cited twice for the same infraction on different days. A 17-year-old Elk River driver was ticketed twice in the same day for not putting down his phone while behind the wheel.
