EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Eugene police say they will begin a special driving enforcement Monday to look for distracted, unbuckled or speeding drivers. The two-week effort will look for drivers committing the three most common violations that contribute to crash-related deaths: speeding, not using seat belts and talking on the phone while driving.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/95RszO ) the increased traffic patrols are part of a statewide safety campaign called “three flags.” Police hope to reduce the number of crash-related deaths by increasing public awareness.

The federal government is providing money for overtime pay during the increased traffic patrols.
