From the Oak Bluffs Police Department:

Here’s an example of why it’s illegal to text and drive:

We responded to a motor vehicle crash on Alpine Ave last night around 9:30 pm wherein the involved vehicle had rolled onto its side. Thankfully, the operator was not injured. The cause of the accident appeared to be distracted driving. The operator was cited for texting and driving and marked lanes violation.

Please remember to drive responsibly.
