Thanks to the Lynnwood Police Department for its crackdown on cell phone use while driving.
Unfortunately this will only be effective for those that have to pay the $136 fine.
There is not a day goes by that I’m not holding my breath as a cell phone user comes at me.
In this age when people are willing to pay $75 or more to attend a sporting event and another $25 or so to park their car, $136 doesn’t mean much.
To make a difference the distracted driving fine needs to be raised to $1,000 and then we would start to save lives.
