Community: #LASD reminding you that
it's not worth it! Texting + Driving = Danger

As part of April’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month
campaign, Norwalk Sheriff’s Station will be joining the California
Highway Patrol and over 200 law enforcement agencies across the state in
high visibility enforcement operations during April’s National Distracted
Driving Awareness Month. The enforcement and education campaign is aimed
at curbing those texting or operating hand-held cell phones, and similar
devices, while driving. Deputies will be on alert throughout the month
for those who break the cell phone laws and place themselves and others
in danger. Operations to cite cell phone violators will be taking place
in the cities of Norwalk and La Mirada. 
The increased enforcement and education aims to
persuade drivers to recognize the dangers of distracted driving and
reduce the number of people impacted by this perilous behavior. The
California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), “It’s Not Worth It!” theme
emphasizes that a phone call or text isn’t worth a hefty fine or a
collision. For additional information and a public safety video, please
