New year, new law: Starting today, our officers are enforcing the new hands-free law. You are no longer allowed to drive while holding a cell phone or other mobile device.

Here are some alternative options should you need to make a call:

• Use a Bluetooth ear piece for hands free talking
• If you choose to use headphones, please keep in mind Virginia law states you may only have one ear bud in while driving
• If equipped, connect your phone to your vehicle through Bluetooth
• Consider having a passenger answer your calls via speakerphone so you can talk hands free
• Use a cell phone mount in your car to hold your phone

The law provides some exemptions, which include:

• Reporting an emergency
• If you are legally parked or stopped
• Anyone operating an emergency vehicle while in the performance of their official duties
• The use of an amateur or citizens band radio
• The operator of any Department of Transportation vehicle during the performance of traffic incident management services

As a reminder, if convicted, you will be fined $125 for the first offense. If you are caught again or seen on the phone in a construction zone, the fine is $250.

Help keep our roads safe and put your phone down.
