Idaho this month is joining Washington in organizing emphasis patrols to target people who text while driving, and other forms of distracted driving. Law enforcement officers in the Gem State started their emphasis patrol on Friday and will continue to be on the lookout for distracted drivers through April 11. In Washington, the distracted driving emphasis, now in its third year, also began on Friday and will continue through April 14. The patrols in both states coincide with the national Distracted Driving Awareness Month/SR. More here.
