Know this…all drivers in the Evergreen state are prohibited from using a hand-held cell phone while driving. There are a few restrictions such as calling for emergency help, but generally speaking - don’t even think about it! However, just because it is against the law does not mean that everyone out there driving is obeying the rules.
Every day in this country a dozen or more people are killed in car crashes by distracted drivers using cell phones. There is a 25% chance that a cell phone was involved in ANY car accident in Washington State. Nearly half of all teens surveyed say they have been a passenger in a motor vehicle operated by someone talking or texting on a cell phone while driving the car in which they were riding.
