An enhanced campaign by law enforcement agencies against distracted driving in September resulted in more than 280 tickets being issued.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation reports a total of 289 citations were written across the state as part of the “U Drive U Text U Pay” effort.
Of those tickets, 158 were issued for distracted driving, 36 for speeding, 13 for lack of insurance and 48 others for various traffic violations.
