Cell Phone Violations Steady, Expected to Increase
It's been ten months since the cell phone law passed that bans use while driving. Talking and texting are both against the law, and you could be pulled over and ticketed. The Charleston Gazette reports since the new law went into effect there have been 125 convictions in West Virginia. The largest number of convictions have been in Beckley Municipal Court, then Berkeley County, and Kanawha County. As the cell phone ban becomes a primary offense, meaning an officer can pull you over for that and nothing else, the number of tickets are expected to increase.
