New driving laws go into effect today in Virginia ahead of the 4th of July holiday weekend. Here’s a rundown of what’s changed, and how to avoid getting a ticket.
Virginia drivers should get used to hitting “send” on their phones before they get behind the wheel of their vehicle. Beginning July 1st, a new state law will crack down on texting while driving. Gov. Bob McDonnell approved the law Monday but recommended that the General Assembly reduce the proposed fines for violators.
