BROOKFIELD, Conn. — Brookfield police issued 56 infractions and made two drug-related arrests in the past week due to stepped-up efforts to crack down on distracted driving.

On Aug. 3, Brookfield Police increased their motor vehicle enforcement activity, in an effort to combat Texting and Driving.

After the first week of the “U Drive. U Text. U Pay.” campaign, 78 motor vehicle stops were conducted after operators were spotted using or manipulating their cellphones while driving, police said.

These stops resulted in 56 Infractions, and two drug-related arrests, police said.

In a Facebook post, the department said that one operator who was issued an infraction during the detail said, “I knew you guys were out here, I just didn’t see you. I was looking for the unmarked patrol car, too.”

"Trust us when we say, 'We will see you before you see us!,'" Brookfield police said. "Drive Safe."

The Brookfield Police Department said it proud to work in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Office on this grant-based enforcement campaign.
