The California Highway Patrol and other Sacramento-area law enforcement agencies issued nearly 1,600 citations last month for using a hand-held cellphone while driving. The minimum fine for a first offense is $159, said Officer Adrian Quintero, spokesman for the CHP's Valley Division.

The final tally for the Sacramento region was:

• 1,583 citations issued for using a hand-held cellphone while driving.

• 61 citations for texting or reading electronic devices while driving.

• 72 citations for other distracted driving violations such as weaving, impeding traffic, and failure to stop for red lights or stop signs.

• 331 verbal warnings.
