NCW — August would be a bad month to drive while using your cell phone.
This is the month that local city, county and state law enforcement officers are targeting distracted drivers.
Extra patrols will be looking for drivers talking or texting on their cell phones, Wenatchee Police say.
The fine is $124 for talking on a cell phone without a hands-free device, or for texting while driving.
Officers on extra patrol will be from Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties.
