West Virginia Law Enforcement Will Begin Enforcing Texting While Driving Ban Sunday

West Virginia Car accident lawyer posts West Virginia Enforces Texting While Driving Ban

Charleston, WV – On Sunday, July 1st, West Virginia law enforcement agencies will start enforcing part of a new distracted driving law that bans texting while driving.  This comes just three days before July 4th, one of the most dangerous days of the year for travelers.  Hopefully, the new law will reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by auto accidents.

Law enforcement will still not be able to pull over motorists for hands-on cellphone such as talking on the phone unless they are also caught texting.  However, if drivers are pulled over for another violation, such as speeding, they can be cited for any hands-on cellphone use.   All hands-on cellphone use will be banned in West Virginia in the middle of 2013.

Drivers caught texting will be subject to a $100 fine for their first offense.  However, State Police officials say troopers will apply discretion when enforcing the new law. West Virginia has put up roadway signs and taken other steps to educate people about the new law banning texting while driving.
