In mid July, 2017, drivers will no longer be able to hold any electronic device (cell phones, tablets, and other electronic devices) in their hands while driving. Not even while stopped in traffic or while waiting for a traffic light to change. It replaces the current Washington law which on prohibits texting or holding a phone to the ear while driving. However the use of a finger to activate, deactivate or initiate a function on a personal electronic device while driving will still be allowed.
