Every Tuesday during the month of February, Winnetka Police will increase enforcement efforts to deter and educate motorists who text and drive. According to a study published in 2016 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at any given moment in the daytime, 542,000 vehicles are driven by people using handheld cell phones. While it is easy to become absorbed and distracted with the convenience of  modern technology, the misuse of these devices can have devastating consequences when it involves a motor vehicle. The Winnetka Police are committed to promoting safe travel throughout the community and help reduce the incidence of automobile crashes.
