Cary police on lookout for texting drivers
Posted June 17, 2014
Cary, N.C. — Cary police said officers will be on the lookout for texting drivers during stepped-up enforcement Wednesday.
Officers will be out in force along Cary Parkway and Maynard Road between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., searching for fast-fingered drivers.
Cary police said distracted driving has been a contributing factor in 71 crashes since 2013.
“Mobile devices today do so much more than make a simple phone call, and it’s critical to remember that the permanent damage caused by taking your eyes of the road just simply isn’t worth it,” Lt. Steve Wilkins said.
Texting while driving in North Carolina carries a $100 fine plus $190 in court costs.
