Distracted drivers who are talking on their cell phones instead of driving are high on the list of violations law enforcement will be watching for today during a traffic safety blitz. “We are going to do something a little different than we have done recently. We are going to actually do all the surface streets that we can inside the City, instead of on the Parkway as we normally do. A lot of our crashes, we have a lot on the Parkway, but we also have 'em a lot on the arterial roadways and some of our residential roads.” Bend Police Sergeant Chris Carney says at least four different law enforcement agencies will join in a concentrated Multi Agency Traffic Team effort from 1 to 5 pm.   They will also be looking for violations of speeding, improper use of seat belts, following too close and disobeying traffic signs. Carney says traffic accidents in Bend have increase 23% over last year, some of that can be attributed to more winter like driving conditions this year.
