#CellPhone Crackdown 83 #Drivers Already #Cited in Just 5 Hours

 Newsflash from your Hollywood Attorney:

Another 83 drivers were facing fines Friday for using their cell phones while driving following another five-hour crackdown by police.

Police cited the motorists between 4 and 9 p.m. Thursday, according to CVPD statement.

Thirteen of the 83 motorists cited were caught texting and the others used their phones in some other manner, police said.

Thursday’s crackdown marked the third time this month that Chula Vista police targeted distracted drivers with a special operation. On April 10, police ticketed 15 motorists for texting and another 60 for using their phones in some other manner and on April 17, eight motorists were ticketed for texting and another 44 were cited for using their phones in some other manner.

All three operations coincide with “Distracting Driving Awareness Month.”

Chula Vista police carried out similar operations with similar results in February and March.

The minimum fine for a first-time violator is $161, and at least $281 for repeat offenders.

“We take the issue of distracted driving very seriously, because we see the aftermath of these totally preventable crashes,” Chula Vista police Chief David Bejarano said.

“Is that text message or cell phone call really worth $161, or worse, someone’s life?”
