Although I commend the police for searching out and ticketing distracted drivers, not enough has been done. I believe this should be kept up all year [“Pay attention! Distracted drivers ticketed,” News, May 13].

I drive on Mill Road in Medford, and I’ve had to move out of the way of an oncoming vehicle — in my lane, I might add — when the driver was blatantly talking on a cellphone.
