Law Against Texting and Driving on the Fast Track

by Deirdre Blake posted Feb 15 2013 5:12PM
You better not think about touching your phone in the car in Virginia.
Legislation that would crack down on people who text and drive is on the fast track to becoming law. The House and Senate Courts committees Friday report the measures for action.
The plans would change distracted driving such as using smart phones to text, troll the Web or check Facebook to a primary offense. That means police could stop and ticket offenders, just for that. Right now, you can only get a ticket for texting if you are stopped for another offense, like speeding.
