New Milford Police Chief Spencer Cerruto is stepping up enforcement of distracted driving laws. He is warning drivers not to text and drive. Cerruto cited national statistics showing that a motorist who texts and drives is 23 times more likely to have a car crash. The New Milford Police Department has received a Distracted Driving Enforcement Grant and will be proactively enforcing distracted driving laws during the entire month of August. Cerruto says voluntary compliance is the goal, but infraction tickets will be issued to offenders.
