Almost 250 Drivers Receive Traffic Ticket Due to Distracted Driving

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.

  1. I bet the Huntington Beach police officers grew tired of pulling over one car to another. They might have realized they will soon run out of tickets to issue. I suggest the government device more effective ways in implementing a zero tolerance on texting while driving.

  2. I think the government should give a graver punishment to drivers who will be caught due to distracted driving. Drivers will continue to disregard traffic rules if they feel that they can easily get away with it.
