Connecticut U-Drive, U-Text, U-Pay campaign begins today

The state's U-Drive, U-Text, U-Pay campaign begins today.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation says it will help drivers keep their eyes on the road.
AND-- their hands on the wheel.
The DOT is working with local law enforcement for the first half of the month as part of the campaign.
The nation's transportation officials say more than 3,100 people were killed in crashes involving distracted drivers in 2017.
