Cracking Down on Distracted Drivers

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A multi-state effort to crackdown on distracted drivers by state police begins this weekend.

Troopers in six states, including West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, are going after drivers who aren't keeping their eyes on the road. This new push begins Sunday and continues through next weekend.

Troopers say it's all about trying to save lives. They'll be doing extra patrols, especially in high-traffic areas. Police aren't just going after drivers on their cell phones. They say they'll be targeting any distracted drivers.
