Minnesota Cops Say: Keep Your Eyes on the Road, Not on Your Phone
Most of us have admit to have done this from time to time, however, some people make it a daily practice. Now the police in Minnesota are cracking down. It’s illegal to read, compose and send text messages or e-mails while driving, and for the next 10 days, law enforcement from more than 400 Minnesota agencies will join forces to catch those who do according to an article in the Star Tribune.
From Friday through April 20, police in some jurisdictions will set up saturation points like they do to catch drunk drivers and people who don’t wear seat belts. Others will ride in school buses and other high-riding vehicles that will allow them to peer down into vehicles and see if people are illegally using their phones or engaging in other dangerous behavior behind the wheel.
