Texting While Driving


The Brookline Police Department’s “Offense Based Enforcement” program is underway. In addition to the regular enforcement, officers will address certain types of incidents, crimes or offenses which need further attention.

The first Offense Enforcement is Texting While Driving (ch.90 s. 13B). The approach will be different from our usual type of enforcement and will be conducted once or twice a week during the Summer.

This enforcement is intended to educate the public about the dangers of distracted driving. Through this education we hope to provide a safer Brookline for everyone!

Remember, it is still a violation to text even if you are stopped in traffic!
