Cell phone use, of course, is obvious. But they'll be looking for other forms of distracted driving, too. 

Michigan State Police are cracking down on distracted driving in a big way - they're going undercover.

They'll be riding in unmarked cars, keeping their eye out for distracted driving. When they see something, they'll notify a marked squad car.

Texting while driving has been against the law since 2010 in Michigan. A first offense carries a $100 fine, while more than one is $200.

And it's not just texting, either. A list of possible distractions includes:

  • Using a cell phone and/or texting
  • Eating, drinking
  • Talking to passengers (really???)
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Changing the radio station, CD, or MP3 player.

So, in short, don't do those things.
