DISTRACTED DRIVER INITIATIVE: The Calvert County Sheriff's Office has partnered with the Maryland Highway Safety Office to combat distracted driving violations on the roads of Calvert County. The Distracted Driver Campaign has kicked off for the month of April. In Calvert County, distracted driving accounts for 69% of the county's serious injury accidents and 50% of its' fatal crashes. The month of April is one of Calvert County's peak months for distracted driving crashes.
The Calvert County Sheriff's Office applied for and received additional grant funding to combat this problem. During the month of April, deputies will be targeting multiple areas at different times of the day to address this serious problem.
The Sheriff's Office conducted the first of several planned initiatives on April 4, 2014. Deputies from the Community Action Team and Patrol Bureau stopped a total of 42 vehicles during a four hour period. A total of 38 citations were issued, 15 warnings, 2 Safety Equipment Repair Orders and one DUI arrest was made. Fifteen of the citations issued were for violations of texting or failing to use a hands free device while operating a motor vehicle.
The Calvert County Sheriff's Office has several other initiatives aimed at reducing distracted driving crashes in April. We ask that you please "Park the phone before you drive!"
