Tip of the Month: The topic of Distracted Driving has been appearing a lot lately in the news and on social media. And for those living in Washington State there is a new law that is going into effect on July 23rd.  Distracted Driving isn't just when someone is using their cell phone.  It is any activity that diverts your attention from the road.  If you take your eyes off the road for 5 seconds while traveling at 55 MPH, that is the same as driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed.

When driving, please be sure to pay attention and don't let distractions get in your way of getting to your destination safely.

Before heading on a trip, check with:
Washington State Department of Transportation (http://www.wsdot.com/traffic/),
Oregon Department of Transportation (http://tripcheck.com/Pages/RCMap.asp),
and Idaho Department of Transportation (http://511.idaho.gov/),
For your daily commute, check your local city website for construction projects.
