The Danbury Police Department is among the law enforcement agencies participating in the "U Drive. U Text. U Pay." campaign. Now through August 15th, officers will be out in force. Fines in Connecticut for violations begin at $150 for a first offense, increase to $300 for a second offense, and are $500 for subsequent violations. Danbury Police say texting has become one of the most common, pervasive forms of distracted driving, and too many drivers are succumbing to this deadly and illegal habit.
