RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A law against texting while driving moves ahead in the general assembly.
A senate committee sent the bill to the whole senate for a vote on Thursday.
The proposed law prohibits sending or reading text-messages while driving.
Violators could be fined 20 dollars for a first offense and 50 dollars for offenses after that.
The law would only apply to people pulled over for something else.
