Preliminary Figures From April Distracted Driving Mobilization

Jun 26, 2016 07:23AM ● By Theresa Gilman
Preliminary figures from the FFY 2016 April Distracted Driving Mobilization are below. 140 police departments, including Tewksbury PD, participated in the April Distracted Driving mobilization this year, which is 17 more departments than last year. The comparison between the results of FFY15 and FFY16 is staggering.
The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security Highway Safety Division thanks all participating departments for their help with this extremely successful initiative, for your participation in the Traffic Enforcement program more generally, and for working so hard every day to make the Commonwealth a safer place.
