Washington Drivers Skirting Law Against Texting While Driving

In early January, we published a post about the new Washington law against texting while driving.

Recently saw this video on Yahoo of a broadcast from a Washington TV station about how many motorists are willing to break the law to continue texting while driving. Part of the problem is that since texting while driving is only a secondary violation, police can’t pull over a driver for doing it unless they are also doing something else wrong. This has frustrated many police who say they see drivers texting while driving on the road every day.
