WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Police Department will target cell phone users during this month's special traffic enforcement initiative.

In an effort to reduce crashes that result from distracted drivers, Woodstock police will look for violators illegally using their cell phones and other handheld electronic communications equipment while driving, according to a release from the department.

Equally important is the continued education of the public on such laws, the release said.

For more information on the initiative, contact Sgt. Rob Pritchard at 815-338-2131 or
