WAILUKU >> Maui police will issue citations to drivers who use cellphones while driving through April 13 as part of a national campaign.
Officers issued 764 citations during last year’s “U Drive. U Text. U Pay” campaign.
State law says drivers using mobile devices in school and construction zones can earn fines up to $347.
Mobile devices include electronics like tablet computers, digital cameras and gaming devices.
Officer Timothy Hodgens said in a news release that distracted drivers risk causing crashes.
Police say drivers should remember to use hands-free devices and wait to use electronic devices until they’ve pulled over or reached their destination.
