(Olympia, WA)  --  Law enforcement officers across Washington are beginning a statewide crackdown on distracted driving.  The "U Text, U Drive, U Pay" campaign is intended to get drivers to focus on the road ahead and put down their phones.  KOMO-TV reports nearly 150 law enforcement agencies statewide will take part in the crackdown.  Current state law makes it illegal to text or hold your phone up to your ear while you're driving, and violators could be fined 136 dollars.
