Traffic Crackdown Nets 46 Chatters, Texters
La Mesa police took a little revenge for you on Friday.
Police, continuing on a traffic safety effort, issued 46 tickets for distracted driving. Police said it was the seventh “Traffic Safety Enforcement Program“ operation, which took place over a six hour period.
La Mesa Police Officers wrote 46 tickets to persons either talking on their cell phone or texting while they were driving, three tickets for other hazardous driving violations and gave two warnings for lesser traffic offenses in a six hour period on Friday morning. Funding for this operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
