The Tacoma News Tribune & The Seattle Times both endorse senate bill making cell phone use primary offense

Two Western Washington newspaper editorial boards, The Tacoma News Tribune and The Seattle Times, wrote editorials in support of legislation which Sen. Tracey Eide, D-Federal Way, introduced to make hand-held cell phone use while driving a primary offense.

As the pile of research continues to grow equating cell phone usage while driving and drunken driving, state legislators believe now is the time to change Washington’s current cell phone law which allows police to ticket drivers only when they are stopping them for another infraction like speeding or running a red light.
