(Olympia, WA)  --  Lawmakers are hoping separate bills being considered in Olympia will combine to put an end to drivers being distracted by their computers and smartphones.  Washington state law prohibits texting while driving or to talk on a cellphone while driving unless the driver is using a hands-free device, but says nothing about drivers doing other things on an electronic device, such checking Facebook, sending a tweet, or playing a game.  Lawmakers say the companion bills would remove loopholes to alleviate distracted driving.
