The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be cracking down on distracted driving this week. The enforcement initiative began on Sunday and will last until late Saturday evening. According to a release from the patrol, 51 people lost their lives and more than 6,800 were injured in Ohio last year due to distracted driving crashes.
Distracted driving can be any action that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, or your mind off of driving. There will be zero tolerance during this enforcement period.
