The Trumbull Police Department along with the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Office, Wednesday announced the kick-off of “U DRIVE. U TEXT. U PAY.” — an effort to crackdown on motorists who choose to text, talk or otherwise distract themselves from the task of driving by using a hand-held mobile phone.
This effort is part of a larger campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) — who deems the month of April, national distracted driving awareness month. Trumbull is participating in this campaign by adding special patrols — aimed at catching distracted drivers — especially those on their phones.
