Washington Law Enforcement Steps Up Patrols for Distracted Driving -STARTING TODAY!!! (Photo) - 04/02/18

Clark County, WA [April 2, 2018] – On the road, off the phone—That’s the message from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) as they announce extra patrols focused on distracted driving, April 2-14, 2018. Statewide, over 150 law enforcement agencies will be out in force looking for distracted drivers.

The Clark County Target Zero Task Force is coordinating these patrols with police departments from Battle Ground, La Center, Ridgefield, Vancouver, Washougal, Washington State Patrol, and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office with dispatch assistance from Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency.

Under the new “Driving Under the Influence of Electronics” (E-DUI) law, drivers may not hold cell phones or watch videos while they are driving, stopped in traffic, or at a stop light. This includes tablets, laptops, games, or any hand-held electronic devices. The law restricts hands-free use to a single touch.
