The California Highway Patrol is using a $400,000 grant to get people to stop texting and driving.  

A spokeswoman says the money is being used to pay for officer outreach to businesses and community organizations.  

The officers are attempting to educate people about the dangers of distracted driving, especially texting.

Other officers will be on the roads looking for people breaking California law, which prohibits texting and driving.  

The enforcement and education campaign is expected to last until next September.
