Driving a vehicle is a complicated activity because you will need to consider different factors at once like your speed, road conditions, and the behavior of drivers around you. If you get distracted while behind the wheel, there is a high chance that you will be involved in an accident.
Cell phone use is one of the most common sources of driver distraction. In an effort to stop drivers from using this gadget while behind the wheel, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and California Office of Traffic Safety has launched a “distracted driver awareness program” last month.
According to reports, Huntington Beach authorities issued about 27 tickets due to texting while driving and 222 tickets due to other offenses connected to cell phone use.
It was also stated in reports that around 20,500 traffic tickets were issued in the state due to various violations.
