Traffic Tickets Won’t Be Cheaper for 4th of July Holiday
You may have the day off, but local patrols are still hard at work Independence Day.
Washington State and Oregon State patrols will be handing out tickets for distracted driving, which can be pretty pricey.
In Oregon, a first offense will cost you $1,000. In Washington, the first ticket will cost at least $136.
Get a third offense in Oregon, and you could be facing jail time.
In Washington state, remember that smoking and eating can count as distracted driving, netting you a $99 ticket if you are pulled over for a different traffic violation.
Have a safe 4th of July!
