Orange County Deputies Crackdown on Drivers Using Phones in School, Construction ZonesAuthor/Presenter: Boyce, Christopher; Ackerman, Sarahbeth
Orange County deputies initiated another crackdown on drivers using their cellphones in school and construction zones. 76 citations were issued, including 50 for violating the “hands-free” law and 26 for other violations. A recent law made texting and driving a primary offense and also banned using a phone at all in those areas. Officials said even though the law has been in place for two months, drivers still seem not to follow.
