Wow! We have been extolling the District of Columbia distracted driving laws on our website for some time  http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/226.cfm     and with Maryland's new anti-texting law taking effect, I guess it was inevitable Virginia would eventually take notice.

The Washington Post reports that Virginia officials in conjunction with AAA are holding events to stress the danger of cell phone use while driving. A particular theme is the danger of texting in construction zones on the beltway.

AAA officials assert that 50% or more of beltway drivers are from time to time distracted by their cell phones. Unless the public can be weaned from this addiction to inattention while driving more car crash deaths and injuries are inevitable.
