Abstract: We prove that the set of Farey fractions of order $ T$, that is, the set $ \{\alpha/\beta \in \mathbb{Q} : \operatorname{gcd}(\alpha, \beta) = 1, 1 \le \alpha, \beta \le T\}$, is uniformly distributed in residue classes modulo a prime $ p$ provided $ T \ge p^{1/2 +\varepsilon}$ for any fixed $ \varepsilon>0$. We apply this to obtain upper bounds for the Lang-Trotter conjectures on Frobenius traces and Frobenius fields ``on average'' over a one-parametric family of elliptic curves.
