Are You Driving “Intexticated”?
Law enforcement officials are are trying to push across the message that texting while driving is dangerous, and in many cases, illegal.

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and AAA's campaign is titled "Don't Drive Intoxicated-Don't Drive Intexticated".
Maine State Police have joined a New England wide coordinated distracted driving education campaign.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2015, 1 in 10 fatal crashes were reported to be distraction related.
I know of at least two people who have been ticketed for violating the NH "hands-free" law that prohibits using an electronic device while driving. They paid fines of $125!
Even PGA stars have been pressed into service to get the message across. Jordan Spieth stars in one psa telling us that, "It can wait".
