Virginia drivers can continue to drive and talk

By Washington Post editors

Virginia drivers have at least another year to talk on their cellphones and travel without buckling up.

A House subcommittee Thursday killed bills that would have banned talking on a hand-held cellphone while driving and made not wearing a seat belt a primary offense, ABC 7 reports.

Currently, police can issue citations for not wearing a seat belt only if the driver is pulled over for another reason.
