The Washington State Patrol released numbers that show they had over 1,600 stops and wrote over 800 tickets for E-DUI in 2018.

What is an E-DUI you ask?

Basically, it is use of a personal electronic device while driving a motor vehicle on a public highway or what I know as distracted driving. We all know we are not supposed to do it, but I did not know it was called an E-DUI.

The name comes after the Driving Under the Influence of Electronics Act that became law in June of 2018, according to reports.

If you are pulled over for an E-DUI your fine is $136 for the first offense and a second within five years is $234.
