Fargo Police Focusing on Distracted Drivers

Posted: Updated:

   Pay attention or pay a ticket. Fargo police are focusing on distracted drivers this week.

  In 2010, 3,092 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver and an estimated 416,000 more were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.  Are you next?  This week, the Fargo Police Department is again taking aim to address distracted driving by having additional officers looking for the violation in hopes of crash prevention. 

  "We will be looking for drivers who choose to text and drive", Sgt. Dorrheim said.  "While distracted, a driver may commit several other unintentional traffic violations in which we will be watchful during our enforcement efforts. The text can wait", explained Sgt. Dorrheim.
