It has been noted in the paper and run as a TV commercial – through June 2, 2013, King County law enforcement agencies (both State and Municipalities) are deploying extra patrols to look for unbuckled drivers and passengers and drivers who are using their cell phones while commuting. Many Pierce County law enforcement agencies are also cracking down on unbuckled drivers and passengers and drivers using their cellular phones while driving on Washington roadways. Currently, these types of violations are infractions, not crimes. However, if an officer detects alcohol and suspects drugs the scope of the stop may expand into a DUI investigation and arrest, so one can never be too cautious when traveling our roadways.
