NBC5 Investigates: Distractions While Driving for Police Officers in N. Texas

According to an investigation done by NBC5 – Investigates, There are have been 18 crashes with the Arlington PD and 15 with the Fort Worth PD in the last couple of years.  Other departments across North Texas have also shown a relatively high number of crashes.  These crashes have been mostly due to distractions in the Police Cars – mainly there on-board computers.  Policy changes have been made that severely limit the use of these computers while driving.  One button responses are allowed, but anything more requires that the officer pull over.  In the past many departments simply urged officers to pull over for when texting more than one button responses; Now, it has become enforceable policy for many departments.
Scott Friedman, Eva Parks, Peter Hull, and Shane Allen contributed to the investigation report

DALLAS — For the third time in two nights, North Texas has been shaken by an earthquake.

The epicenter of Sunday’s 2.1 magnitude tremor was near the intersection of Fort Worth Avenue and Interstate 30 in West Dallas, striking at 10:41 p.m.

The Sunday quake was centered 3.7 miles east of a 3.1 magnitude quake in Dallas on Saturday night. That one came just four minutes after a 3.4 magnitude event in Irving.

Within minutes, the WFAA Facebook page received dozens of comments, many from people who did not feel anything… but others who did.

“Felt it out here in Irving again between Story and Beltline,” wrote Samantha Newton on WFAA’s Facebook page. “A lot weaker than last night’s … feels like I am back in Cali, LOL!”

“Felt it in Las Colinas,” added Lillian Winfoeld. “It was a light shake; nothing like last night.”

There were no initial reports of damage or injuries.
