STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford Police issued 46 tickets on Monday as part of its crack down on distracted driving.

This month the Stamford Police Department is stepping up its enforcement of distracted driving as part of the U Drive. U Text. U Pay campaign. Stamford is teaming up with the Connecticut Department of Transportation during the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) National Distracted Driving Awareness month to make sure all motorists keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.

The campaign began on April 4 and will last through April 30.

During the campaign, police will utilize spotters who are not in marked patrol vehicles, but are instead in plain clothes and on foot. Drivers should keep this in mind, and hang up their phones and drive carefully.
