More than 80 people were cited for talking or texting on hand-held cellphones while driving in south Glendale’s rush-hour traffic, police said.

Glendale police issued citations to 77 drivers who were talking on their hand-held cellphones while behind the wheel, Sgt. Dennis Smith said. Another six motorists got tickets for texting while driving during the Friday enforcement operation, he added.

“Most people do recognize that it is wrong,” Smith said.

Most drivers were cooperative with police and didn’t contest that they were talking or texting on the phone while driving, Smith said.
