April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month
The Annapolis Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting special enforcement details throughout the month looking for drivers violating the Maryland handheld device laws.  Remember that when a vehicle is in motion the driver may not use their hands to use a handheld telephone, other than to initiate or terminate a wireless phone call or to turn the handset on or off.  Using a hands-free device, while driving, is not a violation of the law, but both ears may not be covered by ear plugs, headset, or earphones.  Drivers under the age of 18 are not allowed to use handheld cell phones regardless of whether a hands-free device is used.  While there are other ways drivers can be distracted while driving, cell phone use combines visual, cognitive, and manual distractions.   The Maryland Highway Safety Office reported that for the five years ending in 2011 an average of 47% of traffic fatalities and 65% of traffic injuries in Maryland were from accidents caused by distracted driving.
