(Salem, OR)  --  A measure introduced in the Oregon Legislature would make penalties for distracted driving as serious as those for drunk driving.  The bill's sponsor, Senate President Peter Courtney, says it would make distracted driving punishable by up to a year in jail and thousands of dollars in fines.  Cortney says he may not have the votes to advance the bill, but it's a step in the right direction.  The current maximum penalty for distracted driving is a 160-dollar fine.
