Delaware State Police Target Distracted Driving Across Sussex County


Delaware State Police and the Delaware Office of Highway Safety joined forces over the weekend to crack down on distracted driving.

In Sussex County on Saturday afternoon, Troopers conducted a series of statewide enforcement initiatives using undercover and unconventional vehicles. On secondary roads in the Lewes area, Troopers used a stationary unconventional vehicle to spot distracted driving violations and seatbelt violations. Once a violation was observed, the offending vehicle’s description was provided to Troopers to then conduct a traffic stop.

DSP says over the course of the four hour operation, 19 citations were issued for charges varying from cell phone usage and seatbelt restraint violations to civil possession of marijuana.
