WESTPORT - Westport police beefed up their patrols today in an effort to crack down on distracted drivers.

Police say they issued 130 tickets in about two and a half hours, with the majority of tickets going to drivers using cell phones.

Officer Howard Simpson says he sees drivers on cell phones frequently and feels that random crackdowns are important to let drivers know they'll be caught.

Police say they caught one woman twice on her phone in two different locations.
