According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the total number of reportable motor vehicle traffic crashes on Texas roads in 2017 was 537,475. Of those, 100,687 or 19% involved distracted driving (driver distraction, inattention or cellphone use). Distracted driving is any activity that takes your attention away from driving. Distractions can include anything from texting and talking on a mobile phone to eating and drinking, putting on makeup, shaving, reading, programming a navigation system, watching a video and even adjusting the radio. Remember, distracted driving of any kind is dangerous. If you must talk or text, pull over to a safe location. - Give driving 100 percent of your attention, 100 percent of the time. - It's safer to pull into a parking lot before diverting your attention to your phone or other activity. - Put your phone away – or turn it off – before getting behind the wheel. - Tell friends, family, and coworkers you won’t respond to calls or texts when driving. - Use a smartphone app that sends auto-reply texts when you’re behind the wheel.

Saving lives...in partnership with the community. Yesterday, Officer R. Aldous with our Traffic Unit pulled up on a crash where a vehicle had struck a tree on W. Spring Creek Pkwy. He observed the vehicle was on fire and two citizens had stopped to help. Although the driver and sole occupant was conscious, she was unable to get out of the burning car. Officer Aldous exited his vehicle and ran over to assist the two citizens. They were able to remove the driver from the burning car and carry her to safety. Although she suffered serious injuries, she is expected to recover due to the actions of these three brave individuals. These two citizens and Officer Aldous' actions were heroic. #SavingLives #CityofExcellence #LovePlano

As temperatures increase over the next several weeks, the Plano Police Department would like to remind you to take the follow precautions as you enjoy the spring season: -Always keep your home's doors and windows locked when you go to bed or leave your house, even if you are leaving for a short period. -Secure all lawn and gardening equipment in your garage or a storage shed, and keep your garage doors closed at all times (even when you're doing work around the house). -Put all ladders and other tools back into a secure storage area after you use them. -Be aware of home improvements scams. If you did not solicit the contractor or salesman who shows up at your door unannounced, do not do business with that person. -Always remember to close your car windows, take any valuables out of your car, and lock your doors every time you exit your vehicle, even if your vehicle is parked in your driveway. - If you haven't already, make sure you change those smoke detector batteries. -Get to know your neighbors! Let a trusted neighbor know if you are planning to travel this spring. Neighbors who know each other look out for each other. As always, thanks for being an active part and working with law enforcement to help keep our communities safe.
