Montclair embarks on U Drive, U Text, U Pay
The Montclair Mayor and Council have approved $6,600, for a 2018 U Drive, U Text, U Pay Distracted Driving Crackdown Campaign. Law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey will be using a combination of traditional and innovative strategies to crack down on motorists who text and drive. This effort is a part of the national U Drive, U Text, U Pay high-visibility enforcement campaign that combines periods of intense anti-texting enforcement coupled with advertising and media outreach to let people know about the enforcement and convince them to obey the law. Strategies include roving police patrols, spotters on highway overpasses, and stationary police vehicles prominently placed at strategic locations. The state grant was in the amount of $6,600.
