Law enforcement across NYS to ramp up patrols for distracted driving enforcement campaign

State and local law enforcement will participate in this week’s national “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.” campaign to raise awareness for the consequences of distracted driving.

The New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) announced that law enforcement will ramp up patrols during the initiative, which runs from Monday, April 4 through Monday, April 11, 2022.

GTSC is planning a public service campaign for April to help educate motorists on the dangers of texting while driving. The campaign will run on social media, television, radio, and billboards, according to Fox 40.

During the 2021 campaign, law enforcement across New York issued 34,654 tickets for vehicle and traffic law violations, 1,671 of which were for distracted driving.
