STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - The start of the statewide U-Text, U-Drive, U-Pay campaign to curb distracted driving along Connecticut’s roads is underway and will continue through the end of the month.

The Stamford Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/2033hML ) Stamford police Sgt. Andrew Gallagher relishes the opportunity to go undercover in the city to catch drivers violating road safety regulations.

This year Gallagher looked the part of a roadside construction worker, but in the past he’s donned other disguises to spot violators and report them to fellow officers on the roads.

Gallagher, who commands the police department’s Traffic Enforcement Unit, and four other officers wrote 24 tickets in just the first three hours of the campaign.

Notification of the campaign’s launch this year wasn’t made public until early Monday morning.
