RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A Virginia lawmaker has filed a bill that would prohibit the use of cellphones while driving with limited exceptions.

The Free-Lance Star reports Democratic Sen. Scott Surovell filed a bill this month that would require a hands-free device be used to make calls behind the wheel.

Surovell says he spends a lot of time on Interstate 95 and sees motorists “staring at the phone in their hands.”
