SPARKS, Nev. -- Law enforcement officers in Sparks cracked down on driving violations and handed out two dozen tickets just for cell phone violations.

The crackdown was held on Monday in cooperation with Sparks Police, Reno Police, and the Washoe County Sheriff's Department.

The officers were focused on the Pyramid & McCarran area. 24 Cell Phone violation tickets were issued, and that made of the majority of the citations.

Officers noticed many drivers with their cell phones on the passenger seat or in the drivers hand. Police suggest keeping your cell phone out of sight to avoid temptation.

It is against the law for a driver to use a cell phone while driving, even when stopped at a stoplight.

The fine for using a cell phone while driving is $112.
