Two-day zero tolerance program will target drivers texting or talking without a hands-free device
The California Highway Patrol and Taft Police Department will be cracking down on drivers who text or talk
on their cell phones without use of a hands-free device.
The CHP announced the two-day zero-tolerance program this week.
It will take place on Sept. 21-22.
Taft Chief of Police Ken McMinn said his officers will looking for people violating the law.
“We're going to be hitting it pretty had so people better be aware,” McMinn warned.
The CHP says there are far too many people who ignore the law against talking without a hands-free device or still text while driving. The campaign is designed to put an end to that.
