Bend Police and volunteers are hiding at some busy intersections to see how many people are texting or talking on hand-held phones while driving.


 Bend officer Leo Lotito says distracted driving continues to be a big problem - and in that category- illegal cell phone use makes up a big portion of distracted driving. 


"Between 12 and 20 percent still on the roads- cell phone use or texting among drivers-  we actually put a volunteer out there- sometimes its a traffic officer - we are out of sight keeping track of how many people are using their cells phones-...doing a survey at the time."


He says 12 to 20 percent is probably a low figure.  April is "Distracted Driving Awareness Month."
