SOUTHAVEN, MS- (WMC-TV) - If you drive in Mississippi, you better not get caught with food in your mouth. Texting while driving is not the only thing considered to be distracting to people behind the wheel.
State troopers are going the extra mile to make sure drivers are keeping their eyes on the road -- rather than on their phones, radios, or even their dinners.
Mississippi law enforcement will be on the lookout for distracted drivers Friday as a part of the Mississippi Highway Patrol's "Pay Attention or Pay a Fine" campaign.
Deputies and officers will be in unmarked cars looking for drivers who are putting others in danger by not paying attention to the road.
If an undercover officer spots you losing control of your car because you are on your phone, eating, or anything else that causes you to drive in a careless manner... you will be pulled over by a marked car.
