On Saturday, July 1, 2017, the texting and driving law (Senate File 234) will go into effect. The Pleasant Hill Police Department advises drivers to put down their electronic communication device to avoid distractions.
“As drivers are traveling around and through our city, we want everyone to be safe,” said Police Chief Al Pizzano. “Accidents can happen quickly and drivers should avoid distractions to ensure their safety and the safety of others.”
If drivers are caught using a cellular device while driving, a citation could be issued. The use of an electronic communication device includes taking a photo, using social media apps, or looking things up on the web.
Safety is paramount while driving, so do not utilize an electronic device. Be safe out on the roadways and always remember to buckle up.
