SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia State Police officials are kicking off an enforcement initiative to cut down on distracted driving.

Officials said Monday afternoon that Operation Chain Reaction is in full swing.

Through the initiative funded by federal grants, troopers will be on the roadways in an attempt to identify distracted drivers.

While most usually consider distracted driving as texting and using a cell phone, authorities say it also can include putting on makeup, shaving, reading a paper and eating.

Officials also said they used Highway Safety data to identified roadways in West Virginia with a high volume of alcohol related crashes. That information is going to be used in conjunction with the enforcement effort to specifically target areas across the state.
