I live in the state of WA. Washington is one of 10 states that have a complete ban on the use of cell phones while driving. They are also one of 35 states that now have bans on texting while driving (What the rest of the states are waiting for, I have no idea!).
If you want to find out what the laws are for your state or if you are traveling and will be passing through several states along the way, there’s a great place to find out.
http://www.iihs.org/laws/maptextingbans.aspx we show you a map giving you a color code that shows which states have a ban on all drivers, which one have a partial ban and which ones have no ban at all.
As you can see in the above screen capture, there are also buttons that will take you to other maps that show “hand-held bans”, “Young Driver Bans”, “Bus Driver Bans” or, if you prefer a more detailed, state by state table view, you can get that as well.
I’m hoping this site won’t even exist in a couple of years. We shouldn’t need it when all the maps are completely green.
