RICHMOND, Va. — More than 300 motorists have been cited for texting while driving in Virginia since a new law went into effect July 1.

The law makes texting while driving a primary offense.

Virginia State Police said Tuesday that troopers cited 328 drivers from July 1 through Sept. 28 for violating the law.

Violators face a $125 fine for the first offense. Subsequent offenses carry a $250 fine.

State police Superintendent Col. W. Steven Flaherty says in a news release that texting while driving puts the driver, passengers and everyone else sharing the roadway at risk.
