Sierra Madre, CA. – As part of April’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month campaign, the Sierra Madre Police Department will be actively ticketing those texting or operating hand-held cell phones for the month of April.

In April 2012, over 57,000 tickets were written statewide for texting and hand-held cell use. There were nearly 450,000 convictions in 2012. Whether it’s a ticket or a crash, as the campaign theme states, “It’s Not Worth It!”
