Handheld Phone Use While Driving Illegal in Virginia
Virginia is a “hands free” driving state. It is illegal for any person to hold their cellphone or 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 Mecklenburg County VA cannot claim ignorance of the law.

However, we convinced the Judge to reduce the matter to the lowest offense possible, called defective equipment. This is a no points nonmoving violation.
