During the month of April, the North Haven Police Department will be assigning additional officers to identify, stop and cite drivers who engage in hand-held mobile phone use while driving. Thanks to a federal safety grant, the department will join other Connecticut law enforcement agencies in a major crackdown on texting while driving. Connecticut is the only state in the nation to receive specific distracted driving prevention funds. Distracted driving increases the probability of an accident and it significantly increases such chances for novice drivers. Wait to text and remember “U DRIVE, U TEXT, U PAY”.
