Bill makes cellphone use in work zones a traffic offense

It is truly amazing how far cellphone technology has come. We can now use our cellphones to make phone calls, send text messages and emails, use navigation apps, take photos, play music and more. Of course, using a cellphone while driving can be distracting and can lead to reckless driving and motor vehicle accidents. Therefore, to a certain extent, cellphone use while driving can be considered a traffic offense.

Speed cameras might soon be seen in Virginia work zones

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety over 130 communities across the nation have implemented speed camera initiatives and 422 communities across the nation utilize red-light cameras to enforce traffic laws and reduce reckless driving. Virginia has traditionally been slow to implement such technologies, but that may soon change if a certain piece of legislation is signed into law.

Traffic offenses should not be taken lightly

It is certainly inconvenient to be pulled over by police for a traffic infraction, but it may not seem like a big deal. Many people in Virginia may assume that if they commit a traffic offense, they will simply pay a fine and be on their way. However, traffic violations can result in long-term issues that affect a person well after the incident occurs.

Fleeing the scene of a traffic accident is a criminal offense

Being involved in a car accident can be a scary thing. It may be tempting, in the aftermath of a crash, to flee. However, motorists in Virginia who cause a car crash have certain legal responsibilities, and could be criminally charged if they flee, resulting in a hit-and-run crash.

Reckless driving in Virginia may be more serious than you think

Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest traffic periods of the year in Virginia and nationwide. While most people will abide by the rules of the road, this will not stop police from being on high alert for those they believe are committing traffic offenses, particularly reckless driving. And, reckless driving can encompass actions that motorists may not initially consider to be very serious.
