Crackdown on distracted driving working some states

Distracted driving study results

The crackdown on distracted driving seems to be working.

That's according to a new government study.

The study says hand held cell phone use and texting while driving dropped sharply in Syracuse, New York, and Hartford, Connecticut, during four periods of stepped-up enforcement coupled with media campaigns.

The Transportation secretary says, the study shows that strong laws combined with highly visible police enforcement can reduce dangerous cell phone use behind the wheel.
