GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Seven police departments in North Dakota plan to increase their enforcement of a 2011 law aimed at curbing accidents caused by individuals who were texting while driving.

The police departments in Devils Lake, Fargo and Grand Forks are among those that will be more vigilant during April to keep drivers from sending text messages while sitting behind the wheel.

WDAZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1oEHkoe ) reports the $100 penalty applies even if the driver is stopped at a stop sign or stoplight.
