Washingon Enacts Tough Crack Down On Distracted Drivers

Will it make driving safer or is it an overreach? Washington's new distracted driving law can be looked at from 2 perspectives.  While most people agree that texting or looking at your phone while driving is dangerous to both the driving and other vehicles, drivers are no longer allowed to hold a cell phone, drink coffee milk or juice, smoke a cigarette, or fix their make up. Many people think that the law has gone too far.
While drivers will say that it goes too far, the intent is to make the highway safer.  People need to remember that when you drive, your not only responsible for your own safety, but the safety of your passengers and other drivers and pedestrians.  It also means when they say "don't drink and drive", it means to not drink anything when you drive.
