A Bill that would have made holding a communication device in your hand while driving illegal has failed to pass the House and Senate in Virginia. Citing changes that were made to it had lawmakers hesitant in passing it. Instead SB1768 has been introduced that would ban drivers from holding any device while driving through a work zone on any and all state roads. Northam now has thirty days to sign the proposed work zone bill which if passed would go into effect on July 1st, and violators could face a $250 fine.
