Distracted driving reduction enforcement effort begins

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Michigan State Police are part of a regional enforcement effort on distracted driving this week.

Troopers will also be looking for seat belt use, speeding, and aggressive or impaired driving. Lieutenant Mike Shaw says they want to turn around some disturbing habits like texting while driving.

Shaw added that an increase in the number of citations is not a financial benefit to the State Police Department. The National Safety Council estimates that 26-percent of traffic accidents in 2012 involved drivers talking on the phone or texting.
