GRANTS PASS, Ore.-- The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety conducted special enforcement for the new Mobile Devices traffic violation that went into effect October 1st, 2017.

During that special detail, officers looked for drivers that were operating a mobile device while driving a vehicle.

Officers conducted 33 traffic stops within a two-hour period with a total of 7 citations and 26 warnings.

Grants Pass Police say they hope through education and special enforcement programs they can reduce crashes and injuries in Grants Pass.

Throughout the next year, the department says it will conduct special enforcement details for disobeying traffic signals, not wearing a seatbelt, using mobile devices, speeding, crosswalks, and driving under the influence.
