Don't TEXT and DRIVE - "It's Not Worth It" - Campaign to crackdown on Distracted Driving this February.
Join the Southwestern College Police Department's "It's not Worth It" campaign this February. Texting while driving is not only a danger to yourself, but to everyone else on the road around you. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration finds drivers who use hand-held devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves or others. Officers will be out in force during this campaign period to ensure drivers are not engaging in this deadly behavior.
•The fine for a first offense of texting or using a hand-held cell phone while driving is $159 or more, with subsequent violations being much higher.
The Police Department encourages you to devote your full attention to driving when behind the wheel. Distracted driving - "It's not Worth It."
