Richmond bans holding cell phones while driving

The city of Richmond has passed an ordinance that bans drivers from holding any communications device, such as a cell phone, in their hand while operating a motor vehicle. The purpose of the ordinance is to help keep pedestrians safe and eliminate traffic fatalities. The ordinance was passed by the City Council in a unanimous vote and contains exceptions for public safety personnel or drivers who are having an emergency situation.

Powers of Attorney types and purposes

While it's understandable that you would be concerned about the opinions of people you love, you must take action to do what is best for you and your children.
