Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) and Delaware law enforcement agencies will once again be cracking down on cell phone use behind the wheel with a statewide one day enforcement blitz on November 15th. This enforcement is a follow up to the Phone in One Hand. Ticket in the Other. campaign that took place earlier this year.
AT&T and the Delaware Office of Highway Safety are teaming up to discourage texting while driving in the First State as part of the nationwide It Can Wait movement. Fans who attend the Saturday, September 7, 2013, “Route 1 Rivalry” game between the University of Delaware and Delaware State University will have a chance to “drive” a special simulator that demonstrates the deadly consequences of texting while driving. The simulator will be set up in the Fan Zone at Delaware Stadium beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.
