Crackdown Coming — “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.” — Dave’s Diary

It never fails.  Every time I get stuck in traffic behind an erratic driver it turns out to be somebody on a cell phone. Their willingness to put themselves at risk is one thing but they are jeopardizing everyone out on the road.  Law enforcement officers in Washington State have noticed will be cracking down on distracted drivers as part of a new national distracted driving enforcement campaign this month.

Between April 10 and April 15, the high visibility enforcement efforts will target motorists who are observed driving distracted — talking on hand-held cell phones, sending text messages, and otherwise not paying attention to the road while driving.

The slogan of the national campaign is “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.” and is modeled after similar successful high visibility enforcement campaigns such as “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”

These and all extra patrols are part of Target Zero—striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030. For more information, visit Additional information on the Washington Traffic Safety Commission can be found on the website,
