Starting this week, State Police will be cracking down on drivers making calls and texting.

"Operation Hang-up" starts Wednesday, November 21 and runs through Sunday, November 25.

Officers will be looking for drivers who are talking on their phones without a hands-free device or texting while driving.

Each ticket will set you back about $150.
