Glendale Police Start Enforcing Texting-While-Driving Ban
Starting Friday the Glendale Police are enforcing the city’s new distracted driving ordinance.
For six months the department will issue warnings. Then offenders will get a $250 fine for sending a text message or talking on the phone.
“Whether you're putting it on bluetooth, whether you're using it through the car on speaker phone — either way — our attempts and our purpose on their ordinance is to keep people’s eyes on the roadway and off their electronic devices,” said Sergeant John Roth.
