Talking on the cell phone while driving is now illegal in Washington State as of today. Anyone caught doing it will be fined $124. Talking on the cell phone while driving will be considered a secondary offense though, meaning that the police must find another reason to pull you over first if they want to ticket you.

They have actually had this law for a while in England. But that’s because the majority of cars here are manual.
I have a manual transmission, but still drive my car around while talking on the cell phone. Although, I guess I will have to cut that out now that they enacted the law against talking on your cell while driving here in Washington.
Yeah people do it here as well but it’s not very safe. If your car is automatic you still have one hand free to control the car while talking on your cell. But if it’s manual and you are in traffic or going uphill or driving in the city and talking on your cell it’s hard to drive and shift gears because you have to go let of the steering wheel.
