Today, the California Highway Patrol and all Santa Clara County law enforcement agencies are teaming up for another zero tolerance campaign to catch violators of the hands-free cell phone law.

Last week, law enforcement agencies in the Bay Area ticketed more than 900 drivers during a similiar campaign.

The National Safety Council estimates 28 percent of crashes are caused by drivers using cell phones or texting.
