Lieutenant Jamie E. Gravier of the Arkansas State Police Troop G stopped by the radio station to remind us of the dangers of distracted driving. During the past year, state police recorded over 800 crashes within the Troop G area with 203 accidents related to distracted driving. A new law enacted this year places tougher penalties on an offense. Paul’s Law prohibits texting while driving or using any wireless device while driving. Lt. Gravier recommends activating Bluetooth in newer vehicles to connect smartphones with your on-board navigation system.
