Matthews Receives Revocation of Settlement from DPER

  • Written by David B. Clark
It has been a longstanding act of balance between Woodinville’s rural origins and natural character with those of the city’s development and bustle. The proximity to the mountains, Lake Washington’s northern tip, and the expanses of farmland lend their identities to the city, allowing for a character that is entrenched in nature just outside the metropolis of Seattle. King County holds both, the emerald city and areas now developed with similar rigor. Spirit, beer, and wine operations have all found happy homes in unincorporated Woodinville.

This National Distracted Driving Awareness month, AAA is calling for drivers to keep their eyes on the road, hands on the wheel, and mind on the task of driving every time you’re behind the wheel.

“No distraction- whether texting or eating a sandwich- is ever worth the loss of life on the roadway. It takes just a split second for everything to take a deadly turn,” said Kelly Just, AAA Washington Traffic Safety Program Manager. “These senseless deaths can easily be prevented if drivers choose to focus on the core task of driving when behind the wheel, ask their passenger to be a designated texter, or turn off their phones.”
