The California Highway Patrol and law enforcement agencies throughout the state on Monday are kicking off a month-long crackdown on drivers who text or talk on the phone while behind the wheel.
April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The CHP along with the NHTSA are hoping to educated drivers on the dangers of texting or talking on the phone behind the wheel.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Tuesday that 791 people died in California in driving-while-intoxicated crashes, down from 950 in 2009.
