Do you use your cell phone while driving? If you live in Spokane County, you’re far from alone. Results from a 2013 study show that Spokane County drivers are among the worst in Washington when it comes to talking or texting while driving.
Investigators observed behind-the-wheel behavior of thousands of drivers at intersections in Spokane, King, Snohomish, Pierce, Yakima and Whatcom counties. Spokane drivers had the highest cellphone use, followed by Whatcom County, 12.5 percent; King, 9 percent; Yakima, 8.6 percent; Pierce, 5.4 percent; and Snohomish, 4.3 percent.
