FULLERTON PD JOINS NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO END DISTRACTED DRIVING
Distracted driving is such an important safety issue that April is recognized as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. In California, Police, Sheriff and CHP officials are joining the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), as well as law enforcement throughout the country, to focus on education and enforcement.
The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving in an attempt to change behavior and save lives, not just in April but also year-round. The Fullerton Police Department will join statewide “Zero Tolerance” enforcement campaigns on April 7th and 20th when all agencies will be especially vigilant for distracted drivers. Although the purpose of the campaigns is not to write as many citations as possible, sometimes citations are necessary for drivers to understand the importance of focusing on their driving.
