Metro Detroit Police Using Unmarked Cars to Spot Distracted Driving
If you're driving anywhere south of Genesee County, put the phone down. Actually, put your phone down NO MATTER WHAT.
Operation Ghost Rider is in full effect starting today, so don't get caught with your pants down. Er...with your phone in hand. Yeah, that's what I meant.
The following police agencies are going to in unmarked "spotter" cars, looking for distracted drivers:
- Auburn Hills PD
- Utica PD
- Sterling Heights PD
- Clinton Township
- Chesterfield Township
- Michigan State Police
- Shelby Township
- Macomb County Sheriff
This isn't brain surgery, folks. If you don't have hands-free capabilities, you shouldn't be talking or texting. You should be DRIVING. If your call or text is that important, PULL OVER. Don't complain when you get a ticket.
