Handheld Mobile Phone Use While Driving Illegal in Virginia
Virginia is now a “hands free” driving state. It is illegal for any person to hold any handheld personal communications device while driving a moving motor vehicle on the highways in Virginia. This is a new law that became effective on January 1, 2021 according to Va. Code 46.2-818.2. A violation of this law is a moving violation demerit point offense. Unfortunately, drivers from other states passing through Virginia cannot claim ignorance of the law. Contact us for help with your case!
