Thanks to a cash infusion from the Obama administration, motorists in Connecticut and Massachusetts may see police spotters on overpasses, looking for people who are texting while driving.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced that those two states are each getting $275,000 grants “to help them plan and conduct high-visibility anti-texting enforcement programs.”
The goal is to train police officers on better methods for spotting drivers who are texting.
LaHood noted that it’s more difficult to detect drivers who are texting than it is to find those who are talking on their hand-held cell phones while driving.
