Fort Worth police respond to traffic accidents all day, every day.
And officers know that distracted drivers cause many of them. But they also know that they, too, can be distracted.
So last week, Maj. Paul Henderson, chief of staff, used Twitter to call attention to this PD-produced training video.
According to FWPD, "There are many distractions police officers are faced with every time they get behind the wheel. Our goal is to greatly reduce those distractions which in turn will reduce accidents and the risks associated with driving distracted. While the video is an over exaggeration for effect, it illustrates the dangers of trying to multi-task while driving. The video was filmed on location on a closed track within the secured area of the Fort Worth Police Training Facility."
