Starting today, several Greater Danbury area police departments will be stepping up texting violation enforcement. It's the 3rd time that police have participated in the "Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other" campaign. More than 2-thousand tickets were issued in the first two enforcement efforts.
Citations carry fines ranging from 150-dollars to 500-dollar for texting or talking while driving. The offense is considered a moving violation and can be reported to insurance companies.
The texting ban enforcement effort runs through April 3rd.
