1 in 12 drivers in Washington use cellphones behind the wheel
Fine distracted drivers
It amazes me that, with so many people in our state texting and talking on the phone while driving, so few are ticketed for these offenses. [“Study finds drivers in state busy on cellphones, texting” NW Monday, Sept. 9.]
With limited funds for better public health, education, social services, transportation infrastructure, safety, law enforcement and so on, it seems as if the revenue that could be collected could be directed to many good causes as well as teach some cellphone abusers an important lesson.
Why not go after the low hanging fruit (revenue) in our state, and slap some of the perpetrators with fines?
