State rep who backed distracted driver law gets a ticket for using phone in car

Oregon state Rep. Julie Parrish told KATU that while she on the way to the station for an interview, she was ticketed for using her cellphone to look for directions, but she isn't mad about it.

In fact, the bill that caused her to get the ticket -- Oregon's new, much tougher, distracted driving law -- is one she supported.

Drivers are allowed a single touch or swipe to activate their phones. Everything else is off-limits.
