West Virginia law enforcement authorities are preparing to do a blitz to crack down on distracted driving in the state. The push is aimed at curbing talking and texting on a mobile phone while driving.
Talking or texting on a cell phone while driving in West Virginia is a primary offense. Those drivers found in violation of the Hand Held Device Law are subject to a $100 fine for the first offense.
Law enforcement agencies all across the Mountain State will step up their enforcement in April, which is National Distracted Driving Enforcement Month. Most of the enforcement activity will be between April 10 and April 25, 2015.
Funding from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office will fund overtime and more patrols on the roads to combat the use of cell phones while driving.
