Spring breakers beware police are watching

Posted: Updated:

Spring break is approaching and that raises the risk of more young drivers on the roads driving while distracted.

Thomasville police are springing into action before the spring breakers, increasing patrols and warning drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.

"Spring break is right around the corner and there will be younger drivers on the road to make sure that they know were out here enforcing the law," said Lt. Eric Hampton.

Distracted driving is anything that takes a driver's attention off the road, texting, talking on the phone, even adjusting the radio.

Police also want you to make sure your driver's license and registration are valid before hitting the road for vacation.
