    Default WA bans text-driving. Also eat-driving and groom-driving and read-driving

    The bad news is the penalties are not that great - just a fine of around $200. These crimes should be treated like DUI

    http://www.theolympian.com/news/loca...161874198.html

    From the steps of the Capitol Monday, Gov. Jay Inslee had a warning for all the drivers trying to sneak in one last text.

    “When you are driving while you are on a cellphone, you are more dangerous to yourself and everyone else on the road than a drunk driver with a .08 blood alcohol (level),” Inslee told the crowd.

    State officials are working to get the word out about Washington’s Driving Under the Influence of Electronics Act, which goes into effect Sunday and bans the use of handheld devices while driving, even when stopped in traffic.

    Fines start at $136 and can go up to $234; violations will be reported to insurance companies, meaning violators could see their rates increase.

    Other distractions, such as grooming, smoking, eating or reading, could result in a $99 ticket if you are pulled over for another offense.
    Reckless drivers are a bigger threat to you than all other criminals put together!

    It's only fair that the press is biased towards liberals since the public is biased towards conservatives.

    When the guns are gone, EVERYTHING IS GONE.

    Drivers who do these things are psychopaths with no sense of right and wrong.

    Texting while driving should have the same penalty as a dui.

    Even radios should be banned in cars. You're driving a 3000 pound vehicle at 60 mph and playing with an electronic toy should be out of the question.

    I'd go so far as to say talking should be banned. Especially if it's a woman talking. And if it's a kid or baby making noise in the car, gov't should take them away from the parents.

    I don't know. I only listen to classical while driving. That's not distracting, it's relaxing. Bass enhancers should definitely be banned.

    Black people and anyone other than white people should be banned from driving as they created a huge distraction to drivers like TDAK.

    WHITE PEOPLE ONLY

    Yeah, his freeway of choice.

    That's more like it. It appears the board is finally getting thru that thick skull of yours.

    Changing channels or adjusting the radio is distracting. THINK

    and we're all sure that you're petitioning all of your representatives to apply these same standards to law enforcement, right?
    The war on crime, war on drugs, war on terror, and now the war on opiods.............there's a reason they call it a war. So you idiots will easily accept the collateral damage of innocents
