The Connecticut police departments and state police will be out in force looking for distracted drivers during the month of April, as part of the “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.” campaign. This campaign is a high-visibility effort to enforce distracted-driving laws.
Drivers are continuously ignoring their responsibilities behind the wheel, and distracted driving is a growing and deadly threat on our roadways. Glastonbury PD is teaming up with the Connecticut Department of Transportation during the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) National Distracted Driving Awareness month to make sure all motorists keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.
The goal of the campaign is to step up enforcement efforts to catch distracted drivers and enforce distracted driving laws.
Violating Connecticut’s distracted driving laws can be costly. Drivers who are ticketed are fined $150 for the first offense, $300 for the second offense, and $500 for the third and subsequent offenses.
Tthere is a significant chance you will never need a bondsman for a distracted driving offense, but if you do we are here to help.
