Recent changes in the laws in West Virginia now make it illegal to hold a portable device against your ear while driving. This essentially makes West Virginia a "hands-free" state, meaning that the only devices that can be used are bluetooth or nonhand-held devices. This is a safety precaution that is meant to prevent distracted driving accidents and minimize serious injuries caused by these accidents.
