- Did you know the City of Dublin’s Distracted Driving ordinance is a Primary offense? The State of Ohio’s Distracted Driving Ordinance is a secondary offense.
- In Dublin, driving distracted is a fourth-degree misdemeanor, punishable by a $250 fine and two points on your license. The moving violation is a primary offense, meaning Dublin Police can pull a motorist over if distracted.
Questions and information regarding Dublin’s law will be the focus of a Town Hall Meeting hosted by Police Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg and the City’s Division of Police.
Safety for all who live, work and visit Dublin is the City’s primary concern. Dublin Police are ramping up enforcement to reduce crashes and save lives.
September has been designated Safe Driving Month by Governor John Kasich. One year ago, Maria Tiberi, daughter of 10TV Dom Tiberi and wife Terri, died of some kind of distracted driving. The Tiberi’s are devoted to saving lives through Maria’s Message. The City of Dublin supports Maria’s Message and is committed to education and enforcement to save lives.
