Senator Pushes for “Hands Free” Bill to Become Virginia Law

(Alexandria)-  A Virginia senator is pushing a bill that would ban hand-held phones while driving. Democrat Scott Surovell said the legislation could save lives. A group of Virginia residents led by the state senator gathered at a press conference yesterday to introduce the hands free bill. Many in attendance have been affected by distracted drivers. The bill was introduced in 2019 but failed to receive enough votes. It will be officially re-introduced and voted on in January 2020.
