KSP To Ask Drivers To "Put It Down"

Kentucky State Police are preparing to ask drivers to "Put It Down" under a new law which begins January 1, 2011. The U.S. Department of Transportation is leading an effort to put an end to distracted driving behaviors, such as texting and cell phone use. Just "Put It Down" and concentrate on the road, is the new strategy. KSP will begin issuing citations for violations of the texting law that went into effect July 15, 2010 prohibit ing drivers from texting while their vehicle is in motion. For drivers who are under eighteen, the law prohibits both texting and cell phone use. Drivers who violate the new law will be fined $25 for the first offense and $50 for each subsequent offense, plus court costs.
