A distracted driving campaign conducted across Santa Clara County over five days last month resulted in more than 900 traffic stops, the organizing agency reported.
The Kirk Griess Memorial Enforcement Campaign took place Aug. 5-9, with the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety organizing the local effort and agencies including the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, the Los Altos Police Department and the Mountain View Police Department participating. Patrol officers primarily focused on drivers distracted from traffic by their cellphones. They issued 825 citations for such violations, said Capt. Ava Fanucchi of the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety.
