Tomorrow, drivers in the city of Soledad might see an increase in the number of officers out on the road due to an anti-distracted driving patrol effort being enacted. Using funds made available from the California Office of Traffic Safety, officers will increase patrols around those areas of the city that tend to be the sight of an increased number of crashes. Officers will be placing especial attention on ticketing those drivers texting or talking on their cellphones. Ahead of the operation, the Soledad Police Department is warning drivers to put their cellphones out of reach prior to driving and to set up a message system telling acquaintances you will be in touch when you’re done driving.
