Officers will be on alert throughout the month for those who break the cell phone laws and place themselves and others in danger.Special high visibility enforcement operations to cite cell phone violators will take place on April 3, 8, 17 and 22, 2014.The increased enforcement and education aims to persuade drivers to recognize the dangers of distracted driving and reduce the number of people impacted by this perilous behavior. The “It’s Not Worth It!” theme emphasizes that a phone call or text isn’t worth a hefty fine or a collision. The current minimum ticket cost is $161, with subsequent tickets costing at least $281.“We take the issue of distracted driving very seriously,” said Pasadena Police Chief Sanchez, “because we see the aftermath of these totally preventable crashes. Is that text message or cell phone call really worth $161, or worse, someone’s life?” Drivers who use hand-held devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves. In addition, studies show that texting while driving can delay a driver’s reaction time just as severely as having a blood alcohol content of a legally drunk driver. According to research, sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds. Even a three second glance at freeway speeds means a driver has traveled the distance of a football field.Research shows that there is no difference in the risks between hands-free and hand-held cell phone conversations, both of which can result in “inattention blindness” which occurs when the brain isn’t seeing what is clearly visible because the drivers’ focus is on the phone conversation and not on the road. When over one third of your brain’s functioning that should be on your driving moves over to cell phone talking, you can become a cell phone “zombie.”These operations are funded through a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Diego Poyet is determined to establish himself in Slaven Bilic’s West Ham side in the forthcoming season. Press Association The 20-year-old joined the Hammers from Charlton last summer but has only played three times in the Premier League. He spent a spell out on loan at Huddersfield last season but could find first-team opportunities easier to come by at Upton Park this year as Bilic looks to lead his side into the Europa League group stages. Poyet turned out for West Ham in their 3-0 victory over Andorra minnows FC Lusitans in their first qualifying round tie on Thursday night. And the Uruguay Under-20 international, son of former Chelsea and Tottenham ace Gus Poyet, wants to stay put and stake his claim for a prominent role in Bilic’s plans. “My preference is to want to be at West Ham,” he said when asked if another loan move may be on the cards. “That is where I want to be and that is where I want to play. If the manager tells me ‘Look you are better off going out on loan and get some games’ then I will respect him for that and I will do that. But until I am told to leave I am not going anywhere. “If you are a young player and not playing then soon as there is a new manager, the thing you want to do is impress. In a way to get into his good books and he trusts you. “That is the important thing. If you are young but the manager trusts you, it doesn’t matter how old you are. He has faith in you, he is going to play you, or at least give you a chance.” With the Europa League fixtures and the hope of further runs in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup, Poyet believes he and a number of other young players at the club will be given their opportunities to shine. “It depends how far we get in things like cups and Europa league,” the midfielder said of his chances of playing more regularly. “He (Bilic) might give a chance to some of the young players. We were unfortunate last season as we lost the capital one cup against Sheffield United early on so it was difficult. Hopefully fingers crossed some youngsters will get the chance to play.”
