Local law enforcement to launch campaign against distracted driving

Starting Monday, local law enforcement will be cracking down on distracted driving.

Their goal is to stop drivers from texting or operating hand-held cell phones while driving. The distracted driving campaign will last for the rest of April.

The first ticket will cost $159 and further offenses will be at least $279 each.

Experts say drivers are four times as likely to crash while using hand-held devices.
