(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland Bureau of Transportation is supporting a bill that would close loopholes that make it difficult to enforce distracted driving laws.  In 2015, a court ruled that Oregon's distracted driving laws only apply to texting and talking on the phone.  They don't apply to surfing the internet or social media on a cell phone while driving.  The city's Bureau of Transportation has written the state legislature urging lawmakers to approve a House bill that would do away with this loophole.
