Pay attention when you drive near the Capitol.

Nearly 450 people have received tickets for distracted or reckless driving near the Capitol in the past three years, NBC Washington reports. Some of these drivers were spotted texting or snapping photos of landmarks from behind the wheel.

A hit-and-run driver is still being sought for striking Hill staffer Lisa Radogno while she used an East Capitol Street crosswalk in May, NBC reports. Witnesses said 31-year-old Radogno — who later died of her injuries — was struck by a white 2011 Nissan with a Maryland license plate.
