Jacksonville police crack down on texting while driving

Jacksonville police crack down on texting while driving

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Starting April 13, Jacksonville law enforcement will be raising awareness to the dangers behind texting and driving. 

The Jacksonville Police Department will be taking part in a national campaign called U Drive. U Text. U Pay. This campaign will combine harsher enforcement along with increased advertising and media outreach. 

“Driving and texting is illegal and irresponsible. People who break our State’s texting law will be stopped and fined. If you drive and text, you will pay,” said April Kiser.  “For those who say that driving and texting is an epidemic, we believe enforcement of our state texting law is part of the cure.”

All drivers are banned from sending text messages while driving (Arkansas Criminal Statue 27-51-1504).  The fine for texting and driving in Jacksonville is $175.00.
