EASTON, Md. - Lawmakers have already tightened the reins on texting and driving in Maryland. Now law enforcement is joining in.
Easton Police are joining the first National Texting Enforcement Crackdown.
Between August 10th and 15th, police will put a greater focus on enforcing anti-texting laws, which in Maryland, can carry a $70 fine for the first offense.
The six-day crackdown is part of the national "U Drive. U Text. U Pay"
This is piggy-backing on the successes of the Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaigns.
