jenrgw Virginia Fails to Pass New Distracted Driving Laws

It seems that new laws are constantly being enacted to fight the dangers of distracted driving. However, several distracted driving laws recently failed in the Virginia legislature. In fact, the bills never made it out of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Subcommittee.

AAA called the failed measures “a great disappointment” and “a blow to traffic safety in the state of Virginia.”

Currently, Virginia bans all drivers from text messaging while driving with a potential penalty of $20-$50, prohibits drivers under age 18 from using a cell phone, and prohibits school bus drivers from using a cell phone.  The bills which never made it out of committee would have made it illegal to use a cell phone while driving unless using a hands free device and would have made cell phone violations a primary offense.
