(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would prohibit people from using handheld devices while driving in Washington is being drafted for the upcoming legislative session.  The measure, whose current working title is the Driving Under the Influence of Electronics Act, is intended to update the state's current laws against distracted driving.  Supporters say taking one's eyes off the road for a few seconds and the mental burden of listening or multitasking are as dangerous as driving drunk.  Transportation officials say Washington saw the number of distracted-driving traffic deaths jump in 2015 by 30-percent over the previous year.
