Kentucky transportation officials say driving and texting has reached epidemic levels and enforcement is part of the cure. The officials say people need to know they're serious about stopping this deadly behavior. For National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, which starts Tuesday, Kentucky police will be cracking down on motorists who text behind the wheel as part of the nationwide U Drive. UText. U Pay campaign.
Kentucky Office of Highway Safety Executive Director Bill Bell says texting while driving can be more dangerous than impaired driving.
Thousands of people lined the streets of Cincinnati on a beautiful afternoon to take in the Findlay Market Reds Opening Day Parade. It was a festive event with lots of entries including mascots, marching bands, fire engines, police motorcycles, honor guards and Reds players from the past and present. WVXU's Mark Heyne was there with his camera and has these photos to share.
WVXU's politics reporter, Howard Wilkinson, talked with Maryanne Zeleznik this morning about the chances of an Ohio or Kentucky candidate being nominated for president if the GOP convention comes to Cincinnati in 2016. And, of course, a little baseball talk on the Reds' Opening Day.
