Texting Ban In Full Effect

Whether you are at a stop light or driving through town officers can pull you over for texting.

The texting ban in Grand Forks has law enforcement keeping a close eye on drivers.

Whether you are at a stop light or driving through town...officers can pull you over for texting.

Officers say it can be hard to tell if someone is texting or simply making a phone call.

Certain times of the week it's easier to spot offenders.

"On the weekends we'll be able to sit at an intersection a little bit longer and you'll see at the intersections, some people are just so focused on their text messaging they don't even see the squad car sitting right next to them." Corporal William Hahn said.

The fine for being caught texting while driving is 15-dollars.
