A distraction can last for only a few seconds, but when driving, that's long enough to cause a serious accident. If you've been in a truck accident that has left you with injuries, and it was caused by neglect or distractions, then this news about the state and local police cracking down on cellphone use while driving may please you. According to the news, the authorities in New York are taking a stand against cellphone use while driving, and now are enforcing that as part of an operation called "Operation Hang Up."
The April 12 report states that the state and local police are going to start this operation with a six-day blitz. During this time, increased patrols will be on the streets looking for those breaking the cellphone ban. That will include anyone who is talking on or texting on the phone while driving.
