During the detail motor vehicles were stopped and 6 tickets were issued to various drivers. These tickets are $162 each, and fall under the law which prohibits the use of any electronic device while driving on a public highway. The detail was concentrated on I-89 in the towns of Georgia and Saint Albans. State Police and DMV are urging all operators to utilize Bluetooth, or simply wait till you are no longer operating your vehicle to minimize any distractions and reduce crashes.
