Feds fund texting ban initiatives in Northeast

The federal Department of Transportation (DOT) will provide $550,000 to Connecticut and Massachusetts to help plan and conduct high-visibility, antitexting enforcement programs. Each state will receive half that amount to develop and train police officers on better methods to spot drivers who are texting. The money will also be used to develop media tactics to alert the public to the perils of texting and driving.

“We have come a long way in our fight against distracted driving, but there is still much work to be done,” said DOT Secretary Ray LaHood.

Currently, 39 states have laws on the books that ban texting.
