1 min read

FRAMINGHAM — The Framingham Police Department’s Traffic Unit and Patrol Division launched a concentrated enforcement effort against distracted driving on April 2, resulting in 63 citations for violations of the state’s “Hands Free” law.

During the multi-hour operation, which was partly funded by the Municipal Road Safety Grant, three officers focused on high visibility enforcement in the Downtown, Musterfield, and Junction areas.

In addition to the citations for distracted driving, five incidents led to charges for operating a vehicle after suspension or without a license.

This initiative marks the beginning of a month-long campaign by the Framingham Police Department to enforce the hands-free law.

Motorists are reminded to keep their phones down and concentrate on safe driving.

The campaign’s message is clear: safety comes first, and distractions can wait.
