RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – Due to a Richmond city ordinance, holding a device while driving in the city of Richmond will become illegal beginning on June 9.

Police say starting on June 9 drivers using a handheld device while driving on a public street or highway in the City of Richmond could be found guilty of distracted driving and be fined.

Bad news for drivers who rely on holding their cellphones to use as GPS devices! Be aware that this applies to any hand-held device, too.

Stay safe everybody!
