DETROIT (WWJ) - It's best to just keep your phone out of reach. 

Michigan State Police is reminding people that April is Distracted Driving Month -- but special enforcement is already under way. 

Recent detail along M-59 in Pontiac and Waterford yielded nearly 150 traffic stops. 

Two dozen people were ticketed for speeding, another 21 were nabbed for seatbelt violations. Eighteen people were ticketed for uninsured driving, while 13 were caught driving on a suspended license. 

Nearly a dozen people were arrested on either warrants or misdemeanors.
