A Captain of the California Highway Patrol recently dropped in to a local Bakersfield program to talk about the continued danger posed by distracted driving. He explained how the agency has made it their goal to reduce instances of distraction and all attendant injuries and fatalities connected to it, and they’re doing so by increasing patrols at intersections that could be privy to texting drivers due to the heavy amount of traffic at those sites. The representative of the CHP also noted that they’re confiscating phones in the wake of collisions so that they can deduce whether or not a driver may have been distracted at the time of the crash. He emphasized that texting is proving to be an even bigger danger than intoxication.
