The Washington State Patrol (WSP) has produced a short video that takes you on a ride along with Sergeant Freddy Williams as he discusses why distractions, such as texting or talking on the cell phone, are so dangerous.

The Hang Up and Drive video talks about the dangers motorists face when they are texting and talking on the cell phone while driving.
