San Luis Obispo Police are cracking down on distracted drivers.

On Friday, June 19, officers plan to focus their efforts on drivers that are talking, texting, or using their cell phones in any way that is not hands-free.

A violation of California's cell phone law can result in a $162 fine for the first offense and at least $285 for the second offense.

Funding for this distracted driving enforcement operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
