“We strongly enforce distracted driving laws for one reason – to save lives,” said Officer Troy Kissel. “Choose to drive distracted, and you’ll have a phone in one hand and a ticket in the other.”

The Auburn Police Department joined forces with state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners for this enforcement effort.
