WV Cell Phone Law- Effective July 1, 2012
Click here to review Senate Bill 211, the new Cell Phone law in WV that will go into effect July 1, 2012. In short, the law can be defined as follows:
Texting and Driving- Primary Offense: Texting while driving is illegal beginning July 1, 2012. If law enforcement observes a driver texting while driving, that is reason for the officer to initiate a traffic stop.
Using a Cell Phone (Hand Held Device) while Driving- Secondary Offense: Using a cell phone while driving is illegal beginning July 1, 2012. If law enforcement observes a driver talking on a cell phone while driving, that alone IS NOT reason for the officer to initiate a traffic stop. The officer must observe another violation (ex. expired registration, moving violation, etc.) at which time he may initiate a traffic stop and then proceed to cite the driver for the Cell Phone Usage while Driving violation. However, this law (Using a Cell Phone while Driving) WILL BECOME A PRIMARY OFFENSE ON JULY 1, 2013.
